Neighborhood Concert: La Chiva Gantiva
Known for its energizing live performances, Brussels-based La Chiva Gantiva, founded by Colombian expats, thrills audiences with its own unique style of Latin funk performed with a rock 'n' roll attitude. Singing in French and Spanish, La Chiva Gantiva plays traditional Caribbean instruments, bass guitar, saxophone, and clarinet. The diverse nationalities of the group—Colombian, French, Flemish, and Vietnamese—result in a sound that fuses cultures, creating an explosive on-stage energy that has opened its path to many of the biggest festivals in Europe.
