Tambora Records is a recording studio and an independent record label from Bogotá, Colombia. It was created in
2011 with the goal to support musical projects of new
colombian music with the intention to help in their
development and consolidation of their work, to achieve
the internationalization of their music in different markets.
Since 2011 we have work with different musical groups that
rescue or reinterprets colombian music genres as
Tribu Baharú, Colectro, Banda Vocal Nvoz, Pura Sangre,
La Sabrosura Dura, Curupira, Martina Camargo, Afrotumbao, Paito and Radio Rebelde.
TRIBU BAHARÚ is an afro-champeta music crew from the Colombian
caribbean coast. Champeta music has been denigrated and damned,
boycotted and banned, but it can never be stopped: champeta, the ever
evolving, high-energy hybrid of Colombian, African and Afro-Caribbean
styles just keeps on coming. And leading a new charge are Tribu Baharú,
barrelling out of Bogotá, championing their version of champeta, inspired
by the legendary, street-shaking Picó sound-systems of Colombia's
Caribbean coast, but here played all-live-onstage with sparkling
Congolese guitar driven by high-speed bass and drums and the
all-animating upfront singers. Tribu Baharú is part of a wave of Nuevas
Músicas Colombianas based in the capital city that are reestablishing it as
a prime force and adding more ingredients to the recipe.
Nowadays Tribu Baharú transmits not only positive messages but also
wants to maintain alive the memory of their ancestors through singing
about their culture and implementing their street dialects and Palenquero

LA SABROSURA DURA
La Sabrosura Dura is a project that starts in 2010 from the curiosity of the
band members to fuse different latin genres with influences such as rock,
funk and hip hop, amongst some others. Always maintaining a solid base
of salsa they have influences as diverse as Calle 13, La Fania Allstars,
Los Amigos Invisibles and even Jamiroquai. In every single one of their
compositions they leave an imprint of their modern and young style in a
conservative genre ensuring the enjoyment for young and old audiences
alike. No latin hips are required to be able to get lost in a frenzy of dancing
awakened by La Sabrosura Dura.
