Kiko Villamizar was born in Miami to Colombian parents and was taken to the Andean city of Medellin, Colombia when he was small and raised there. He learned Latin American folk music through the oral tradition of his family and then went back to Miami to
study jazz after high school. Then he began traveling the Americas collecting melodies and beats that he has formed into his own unique mix. His culture, agriculture, and life stories are put into his songs as he celebrates life and Mother Earth while lamenting the violence and inequality he has seen both in Medellin and in the United States. Kiko is not only a fusion of the Andes and the Caribbean.His songs are relevant and contemporary while strongly honoring its roots.

Los Gaiteros de SanGuashington are a Colombian band born in Washington DC to showcase the richness and variety of sounds from Colombian music: vallenato, cumbia, porro, salsa and more.
