Biography

The New York Times says, "Ms Pulido holds on to the rawness of the original melodies while giving them a sophisticated new context." This richness can be seen in her different ensembles and repertoires.
Traditional genres such as cumbia and bullerengue from the Atlantic coast, currulaos from the Pacific coast, as well as joropos from the Colombian eastern plains are the point of departure for her musical creativity. Lucia's vocal sophistication is enhanced in genres such as herding songs, funeral laments, and harvest chants which give the singer the chance to express her voice fully.
Lucía Pulido also performs songs written for her by composers Iván Benavides and Sebastián Cruz. Cruz is currently the ensemble's arranger and musical director. Lucía's core performing group consists of percussion, clarinet, bass, guitar and voice.
