The Caribbean Party Machine from Colombia!
Founded in 2009 in the heart of Cartagena, Colombia, amid the rich Caribbean and African cultural epicenter, Bazurto All Stars came to life. Now one of the hottest Cumbia bands in the country, they captivate their audience with an unparalleled and dance-intensive stage show, charged with energy and enthusiasm. They are often referred to as “The Party Machine.”
Their versatility is impressive, as they master a wide range of genres, from captivating Hip Hop and traditional Colombian Vallenato to infectious Cumbia and Reggaeton.
In 2015, they achieved breakthrough success in Colombia with their hit “El Bololó,” which garnered more than 4.8 million views on YouTube. This success was accompanied by another triumph: Their hit “La Pupileta” was chosen as the official song for the renowned Barranquilla Carnival in 2016, amassing an astounding 16 million YouTube views.
Their music was honored in the same year with the prestigious “Congo de Oro” award at the Barranquilla Carnival, highlighting their significance in the Caribbean music scene. The band continued to achieve great success in the following years: In 2017, their track “Vacílatela con Fefi” was named the official song of this massive celebration. Their winning streak persisted as they again won the coveted “Congo de Oro” award in 2018 and 2019, ultimately embarking on successful tours throughout Europe and the USA.
