Jacobo VÉLEZ

velez-jacobo Jacobo Vélez, producer, singer and saxophonist from the city of Cali, Colombia, is currently the Creative Director of El Callegüeso and La Mambanegra, a transmedia and multidisciplinary project that creates a universe with both fictional and realistic aspects, spun by a character, El Callegüeso, based principally on the artist’s maternal great-grandfather. Vélez’s music has been nourished, since its inception, by the languages of jazz, Latin jazz and research into the traditional Afro music of Colombia. His work as a composer and producer has resulted in numerous productions, three of them with a band founded by Vélez in the early years of this century called La Mojarra Eléctrica, a band he led for 13 years in Bogota, Colombia, and considered by critics as one of the key projects and pioneers of new Colombian music. He is currently about to release his next album with La Mambanegra, Radio Mamba Internacional, with the Tambora record label.
