Grupo Rebolú

Artist Website

Is an Afro-Colombian musical ensemble comprised of some of the finest Colombian musicians in the united states.

The group was created from the desire of Ronald Polo, (vocalist/composer/gaitero), Morris Canate, (master folkloric percussionist), and later on Johanna Castaneda (Vocalist/musician) to promote the rich musical traditions of their ancestors; the afro-descendents of Colombia’s caribbean coast.

It is their belief that these folkloric traditions should continually evolve over time and with the ideas of new generations of folklorists. This belief is surely reflected in their music.

The original compositions of Ronald Polo forge new paths for Colombian music while respectfully remaining faithful to its ancestral roots. In the process, they create a truly unique musical and cultural experience.

From traditional songs to original compositions, the entirely of Rebolu’ repertoire is loaded with energy, history and danceability. Their unique reinterpretations of traditional Afro-Colombian rhythms such as Gaita, Tambora, Chalupa and Bullerengue, among others, make it extremely well suited not only for festivals and cultural events, but also for nightclubs. We hope you listen and enjoy.


Es un conjunto musical afro colombiano representado por algunos de los mas finos musicos colombianos en los Estados Unidos.

El grupo fue creado del deseo y amistad de Ronald Polo (vocalista/compositor/gaitero), Morris Canate (percusionista folklorico) y mas adelante Johanna Castaneda (vocalista/musico) para promover las ricas tradiciones musicales de sus ancestros; los Afro-decendientes de la costa caribe de Colombia.

Es su creencia que estas tradiciones folkloricas deben continuar creciendo sobre el tiempo y con ideas de los nuevos folkloristas. Esta creencia es muy bien reflejada en su musica.

Las composiciones originales de Ronald Polo forjan nuevos caminos para la música colombiana respetuosamente permaneciendo fieles a sus raíces ancestrales. En el proceso, ellos crean una experiencia musical y cultural realmente única.

De canciones tradicionales a composiciones originales, el repertorio de Grupo Rebolu esta cargado por energía, historia y dancibilidad. Sus reinterpretaciones únicas de ritmos afro colombianos tradicionales como Gaita, Tambora, Chalupa y Bullerengue, entre otros, hacen esto sumamente satisfactorio no sólo para festivales y acontecimientos culturales, sino también para clubes nocturnos y mas. Esperamos de su agrado que escuche y disfrute.
