Singer and leading Argentine percussionist Vivi Pozzebón has a unique way of mixing Argentine, African and Caribbean music in a sonic journey that fuses traditional rhythms with the power of an urban beat.
Her wide repertoire incorporates the rhythms of Cuban conga, cumbia, reggae, Huayno, hip-hop, Yoruba chants, chamamé, Brazilian samba, milonga, candombe, Peruvian celebration, chacarera and Argentine cuarteto, and includes traditional Latin American folk songs and her own creations.
She is part of the group De Boca en Boca, which is the best female vocal band to have emerged from her country in the ethnic music genre. In 2009, she embarked on a solo career and has already released three studio albums: Vivir en la tierra (2015), Madre Baile (2011) and Tamboorbeat (2009). Since 2010 she has also directed, together with percussionist Liliana Zavala, the project Tamboreras - Mujeres al Tambor (Women drummers), traveling around the country with percussion workshops, lectures and live shows in order to form a network of female percussionists.
As well as working with colleagues, she has also shared the stage with artists such as Lila Downs, Susana Baca, Mercedes Sosa, Bomba Estéreo, La Bomba de Tiempo, Minino Garay, Yusa, Liliana Herrero, Raly Barrionuevo and Los Caligaris, among others.
