Colombian band to perform in capital this May

Pambil, a drums band from Colombia, will perform traditional music at the Hanoi Opera House on May 3rd.

Pambil is a shocking traditional drums band that will make you move and dance, but also enjoy the sweet melodies of the voices on top of that energy and the intense but warm sound of the Marimba de Chonta. (Photo courtesy of the embassy)

The loud and energetic beats of drums will be accompanied by the melodious voices of the band members, who will also use Marimba de Chonta (a percussion instrument consisting of a set of wooden bars struck with mallets called knobs to produce musical tones) to produce intense but warm music.

The band, which was formed in 2007, has been influenced by the Marimba traditional music from the south of the Colombian Pacific coast. All the members have extensive musical experience and deep knowledge of Marimba.

In the event on May 3rd, the band will perform traditional music such as Juga, Bunde, Pasillo, Currulao and Rumba in original compositions as well as old traditional songs. The music is set in both an urban and wild landscape.

Tickets can be collected from April 26th onwards at the Embassy of Colombia, situated on the 14th floor at No. 16, Phan Chu Trinh Street, Hanoi.

The event is being organised in the framework of Cultural Programme 2017-2019, signed between Vietnam and Colombia during the visit of Vietnam’s Vice President Dang Thi Ngoc Thinh to Colombia. Besides the music concert, many cultural activities have been organised to promote the image of both the countries.

Before their performance in Hanoi, Pambil will put on a show at the 2018 Hue Festival from April 28th to May 1st./.
