Colombian stars Monsieur Periné have released the official music video for their new single “La Sombra” and launched an extensive world tour. The video features the song’s special guest Leonel Garcia (Sin Bandera) and stars Sofia Gomez Uribe – a Colombian free diver with three world records. 

The album ‘Encanto Tropical‘ culminates the evolution of Monsieur Periné’s sound from acoustic Django Reinhart-inspired Gypsy-Jazz to hybrid electronica Latin groove pop. Formed by Catalina García and principal collaborator Santiago Prieto in the Colombia colonial village of Villa de Leyva in 2007, the band originally played a small repertory of boleros and bossa nova tunes at weddings and parties.

Encanto Tropical‘ brilliantly succeeds in telling those kinds of stories. It’s an album that captures a band at their creative peak and is ready to take its place in the pantheon of contemporary Latin music greats.
