Baru-Vibes was founded by Colombian born Juan Carlos Medrano. He came to Canada in 2006 with the group Wayove. He only had a few hundred dollars in his pocket but was rich in his passion for music. Wayove soon disbanded, but Juan Carlos’ passion never died. His roots are grounded in the folkloric rhythms and sounds of the Colombian north coast and he wanted to share that music with the world. His first CD, Poco a Poco, released in the early part of summer 2011 will be performed live for the first time here at Harbourfront Centre. The music maintains its structure in Afro-Colombian rhythms and, with the creativity and help of producer Diego Las Heras, has taken the sound and energy of the music to a special place. Ya se formo el bembé!
