PURA BULLA, consists of original as well as traditional compositions rooted in music called Bullerengue. This style comes from the Colombian Caribbean coast in the north of the country and it originated from the musical tradition of African slaves. It was later influenced by Indigenous and Spanish culture. Similar to the Jazz tradition, Bullerengue has roots in several different musical cultures, and It is elaborated on this aspect of the music through my compositional and instrumentation choices. For the recording I chose different instruments that come from other musical traditions around the world such as the Arabic Flute, Mandolin, and Greek Laouto.
