In Colombia’s capital of Bogota, La Perla are sometimes referred to as the Three Drum Witches — they’re a one-of-a-kind vocal and drum trio with powerful lyricism, charged lyrics, and a cross-pollinated expression of Lat-Am genres such as cumbia, bullerengue, merengue, gaita, chalupa, samba, and champeta, layered with the urban elements of contemporary Bogota and the international influences of hip-hop and rock n’ roll.
