La Manga is a cultural identity laboratory that is inspired by the spirit and ancestry of cultural manifestations from the Caribbean coast in Colombia such as Bullerengue, Cumbia and Tambora. Honoring Black and Indigenous oral traditions; connecting with the power of tambores Afro-Colombianos (Tambor Alegre, Tambora and llamador) and celebrating life through storytelling and bailes cantaos.

This project is the work of a collective of women artists composed of Daniela Serna, Andrea Chavarro; Katherine Ocampo, and Lina Fernanda Silva. We enjoy creating and fostering a community of women around these traditions using percussion as a portal to connect these universes.

La Manga was recently featured at The New York Times and has performed at Joe ́s Pub, Nublu, Moma PS1, Museum of the City of New York, Museum at Eldridge Street, Queens Theater, Bronx Music Heritage Center, Brooklyn Conservatory of Music and Arrebato Queer Party. You can follow this Brooklyn-based collective on Instagram as @lamangabk
