About the Event
Montreal’ GKO is an explosion of music, dance and circus. The orchestra fuses Colombian Caribbean rhythms with musical styles from around the world in a melodic chaos. Nominated for the prestigious Canadian Juno Awards, GKO is promoting their second album “VelkomBak”. A dozen songs that greatly expand the band’s musical palette and that invite us on a musical journey from the Andes to Quebec, passing through India, Spain and the Balkans. A unique and tasty Canadian recipe, connecting disparate cultures and traditions through the common thread of the rhythmic language of Cumbia, with hints of ska, jazz and funk. GKO has to its credit more than 300 concerts in Canada and 3 international tours (Colombia in 2014, France in 2015 and the Czech Republic and Austria in 2016). It is a rhythm machine getting ready to invade the world with its madness and magic.
