- - Afro-Colombian musical ensemble Grupo Rebolú was created by Ronald Polo (vocalist, composer and player of the gaita native Colombian flute), Morris Cañate (traditional drummer) and Johanna Castañeda (vocalist and percussionist) to promote the rich musical traditions of their heritage: the African descendants of Colombia's Caribbean coast. They believe these folkloric traditions should continually evolve over time and incorporate the musical ideas and creativity of new generations of musicians. The original compositions of Ronald Polo for Grupo Rebolú forge new paths for Colombian music, while respectfully remaining faithful to traditional Afro-Colombian rhythms such as gaita, tambora, chalupa and bullerengue.
