LA CHIVA GANTIVA (Afro-Colombian Rythms PUNK-Klore (Funk, punk, jazz) A lot of Energy on stage.

La Chiva Gantiva plays music without borders! Genre bending and adventurous they’ll make you dance, jump or mosh with their original combination of rock, funk, hip hop and punk with Afro-colombian rhythms, while preserving a jam mentality and multicultural origins.
Known for their live antics and frontman Rafael Espinel’s empathy towards the audience, La Chiva Gantiva are a treat to see live but also an amazing trip around the world when any of their three studio records play at a Colombian party, at a Belgian bar, or at a Mexican radio station.
The band was born in Brussels with a group colombian percussionists playing together in order to feel closer to their homeland. Brussels being an amazing cosmopolitan and multicultural city, the team quickly grew and added musicians from diverse backgrounds but sharing the same passion for live music. The members of the band are from Colombia, Belgium but also Vietnam and Chili.
The result of this cultural soundclash is a unique musical style and explosive on-stage energy, that has lead them on the five continents and the biggest festivals throughout the world.
«They are a frenetic carnival-punk racket that detonates like a Molotov cocktail of rock, rap, soul and ferociously funky Latin rhythms» The Times (UK).

Steffig Raff (Electro- Rock / World)

STEFFIG RAFF, the first powerful serve of a game, is the story of a collision between musicians out of Brussels, crazy about tennis and the hallowed sounds of rock, groove and electro. The result is a fusion of the electronic and organic, drawing its energy from traditional and modern trance music, like a passing shot and a lob merging for a fleeting moment.

Their ball machines are synthetic and acoustic instruments : saxophones, synthetizers, electric guitar, sampler, drums and percussion.

Their racket to smash the ambiance is the singer’s voice, powerful, soulful and savage like a forehand hit down the sideline.
