Bio

If you’re Colombian, then you already know that the most popular and dynamic folk rhythm around is called vallenato. Native to the Caribbean Coast, its defining characteristics are its unbridled enthusiasm and the lead role played by the accordion, which is usually accompanied by caja vallenata (a small goat leather drum), guacharaca (a tube-shaped percussion instrument), bass, and vocals.

TD Sunfest 2014 headliner Alberto Beto Jamaica is one of of Colombia’s most renowned vallenato and cumbia musicians with a 25-year career in the music business and more than 50 professional recordings. Since winning the prestigious Leyenda Vallenata Festival in 2006, he has become known as Rey Vallenato Colombia (The Vallenato King’ of Colombia).

Rey Vallenato’s music is a vibrant mix of cumbia, paseo and porro all wrapped into his infectious accordion-driven vallenato. He contemporizes the tradition by adding electric bass, congas and timbales to the conventional instrumentation, while never losing sight of the music’s roots with its deep cultural meaning for the Colombian people, reflecting the way they live, think, act and feel.

Beto Jamaica’s debut release in North America, Rey de mi Folclor features 14 tracks and is a testament to Rey Vallenato’s commitment to both the tradition and future development of vallenato music. A star in Colombia with two Top 5 hits, Beto has performed in more than 50 musical productions, and toured Europe, the Americas, the Caribbean and Asia. As he once again sets his sights on this continent, the summer of 2014 will see the Vallenato King performing in the US and Canada, including his much-anticipated return to TD Sunfest as part of “Salsa in the Sun ‘14”.
