Genre: Latin, Salsa, Cumbia
The city of CALI, Colombia, is known for her "caleñas", ie, her women.
They are said to be among the most beautiful in the world. Anyone who has seen Nancy MURILLO for the first time will understand this. She's herself a "sum-up" of this city: vibrant, warm, beautiful, full of energy and fed of the many influences that form the cultural richness of Latin America.
With her mastery of drama from the Del Valle University, she very quickly discovered what constitutes the essence of this profession: the pleasure of being on stage, communion with the public.
Very naturally, she made her first steps on stage with the Troupe TECEPAL from Cali. Then she toured throughout Colombia with the Teatro Experimental of Cali. She is fascinated, galvanized by the show. But the music attracts her more and more and salsa will triumph from her love of theater.
Then she joined La Morada, Cali's Dance School, eager to learn everything: singing, contemporary dance and ballet, but also salsa and folk dancing. All those hours of dance rehearsals will carve her a body of goddess and forge her a strong professional mental . She chose her path. A future star is born.
Her first group, LA GAITA, puts her on track to success. She very quickly sang for the Grupo BAHIA, a true institution in the region. She then goes to Bogota, the capital, to accompany AZUL AMAZONAS (the fetish of youth Colombian time).
While her path seemed all mapped out, love made her cross the Atlantic to Bordeaux in France. But passion for music did not abandon and she incorporated the band MELTING POT a few months after her arrival. Her desire to perform on stage became stronger and stronger. She decided to leave Bordeaux for Paris to Paris to try her luck. She then sang with the CALENTURA, then with AZUQUITA y su Melao.
But an important step of her carreer was the meeting of the SOMBRES HEROS, a group of young Parisian musicians who interpret the traditional music of her country, Cumbia. She became the singer of the band. The complicity which outcame of this meeting is reflected in their compositions to which Nancy brings a specific sparkle and sincerity.
After "Tia Yova", an album "caliente" to dance on the rhythms of Colombian cumbia and salsa, Nancy Murillo has just released "Mujer Coraje". This new album, recorded by her new band Pazifico, modernizes the Afro-Colombian musical traditions with jazz and funk..
