WELCOME TO CHIAMUSIC
Home of Latin Grammy nominee producer, multi-instrumentalist, composer and educator, Martín Vejarano.
Born to a dancer/choreographer and a filmmaker/professor in Bogotá, Colombia, Martin was surrounded by the arts from an early age. Martín's main focus has been the traditional musics from Colombia, with an emphasis in Gaita/Cumbia Music. He holds degrees in Jazz from The Brooklyn-Queens Conservatory of Music and in Music Theory from The City College of New York.
As an educator and music instructor, Vejarano is currently a staff member at Flushing Town Hall and a long time collaborator with the Center For Traditional Music And Dance, through which he has received the NYSEA Master-Apprentice fellowship to teach traditional Gaita Music, a number of times.
Martín currently directs and leads four music projects: La Cumbiamba NY, Cumbia River Band, Chia’s Dance Party and NYC Gaita Club. Two new albums of original material with Cumbia river Band and La Cumbiamba eNeYé, are on the way.
