In the history of Afro-Colombian culture, Son Palenque is without a doubt an exceptional band, and its history has a place at the very heart of ancestral palenquera music as well as at the musical intersection between Africa and Colombia, which took place on Colombia’s Caribbean coast in the 70s and 80s and which continues today through champeta, a musical genre and dance that also bears a strong African influence.

The members of Son Palenque band grew up in rural communities fixed in time, with deep musical roots, duels between tambora players and a legendary musical profusion of traditional musicians that built the foundations of today’s Afro-Colombian music. Later they all migrated to the city and bit by bit made a place for themselves.
