The 14th annual Chicago SummerDance series presents free Salsa dance lessons by Latin Rhythms and live music by Grupo Rebolú, performing Colombian Dance music.
Directly from New York City, Grupo Rebolú specializes in the traditional sounds of the Carribean coast of Colombia. Founded by childhood friends Moris Cañate and Ronald Polo, both of the Grammy-nominated N.Y.C. based Folklore Urbano, Rebolú features original compositions set to traditional rhythms as well as a repertoire of songs hundreds of years old. Rebolú does not limit itself to folklore however. They are able to effortlessly incorporate other genres of Colombian and Latin American music such as Vallenato, Salsa, and even Calypso into their sound. The final result when Rebolú is firing on all cylinders is a musical and cultural experience like absolutely no other.
