Monsieur Periné are an 8 piece Latin orchestra from Bogota, Colombia. They have won a Latin Gramm award for “Best New Artist” in 2015. They recently completed a mini-US Tour, making stops in major cities.
According to their bio, “Monsieur Periné’s airy yet virtuosic instrumental foundation connects 1930s Paris with the youthful spirit of modern Bogota. It is the perfect backdrop to showcase Catalina Garcia‘s sugarsweet, sunshiny vocals at the very center of their signature “swing a la Colombiana” style. With the help of the illustrator Jose Arboleda and their own fashion designer, the band has created a world of their own, that comes to life in their music, their artwork and of course their performances.”
