Monsieur Perine
Monsieur Perine
Monsieur Periné is one of the leading bands in Colombia‘s thriving new music scene. The group
won a Latin GRAMMY award for "Best New Artist" in 2015. Their latest album Caja de Musica
was produced by Eduardo Cabra, aka Visitante from the groundbreaking Puerto Rican group
Calle 13.The album also features vocal guests like Ruben Albarran from Mexican rock
legends Cafe Tacuba and Dominican star Vicente Garcia.
Rooted in gypsy jazz music and celebrating Django Reinhardt, Monsieur Periné's fresh style
adds a variety of Latin elements to the mix. While incorporating genres like cumbia, son, bolero,
tango and samba, the band performs traditional South American instruments like the charango,
bandoneon and Latin percussion.
Monsieur Periné's airy yet virtuosic instrumental foundation connects 1930s Paris with the
youthful spirit of modern Bogota. It is the perfect backdrop to showcase Catalina Garcia‘s sugarsweet,
sunshiny vocals at the very center of their signature "swing a la Colombiana" style. With
the help of the illustrator Jose Arboleda and their own fashion designer, the band has created a
world of their own, that comes to life in their music, their artwork and of course their
performances.
"What’s amazing is that Monsieur Perine isn’t just some obscure jazz-school nerdery. They’ve
made big strides, earning radio play and marquee billing at major music festivals. In part, that’s
because they balance their high-concept musical fusions with a spot-on pop sensibility." -MTV
"Monsieur Perine surprised us this year, flipping the script with music inspired by French jazz,
swing, and Colombian folk." -LA Weekly
"The sextet's bouncy and joyous brand of Colombian swing captivated the crowd... It was easy to
see why Monsieur Perine is such a smash in South America." –Creative Loafing (North Carolina)
