Folklore Urbano is a musical production company founded by Colombian composer and pianist Pablo Mayor.  The concept “Folklore Urbano” was founded in 1999 when Pablo Mayor moved to NYC and decided to dedicate his career to producing modern Colombian music, combining his formal studies in jazz arranging with a passion for music from his native country of Colombia.  Out of this concept came his renowned band in various formats from trio to full 12-piece orchestra, an educational project “Cumbia for Kids and Cumbia for All,” The Encuentro NYC Colombian Music festival, and a music and dance collaboration with Colombian dancer Daniel Fetecua “Amalgama.”
