La Perla

La Perla is a musical project created by Karen Forero, Giovanna Mogollón and Diana Sanmiguel, musicians investigating the musical tradition of the Colombian Caribbean with more than 10 years of experience in interpreting the format of gaitas and drums and sung dances. It was born in 2014 and throughout these years they have maintained a basic training, where they have invited other members to join and build in different stages until defining the aesthetic and staging resources that have allowed them to stand out in the capital and national environment.

In 2015 they were winners of the Gaita’s Festival of Ovejas, Sucre, in the amateur category as the first group from Bogotá and the second group of women to win this recognition in the entire history of the festival. Since then it has been an innovative project that, inspired by the traditional sounds of the Caribbean, pays tribute to cultural legacies, which ventures through other routes of the greater Caribbean and which converge in spaces of innovation, until reaching an original sound with attitude and with a very unique charisma that fully represents the new Colombian music.
