Vibrating charangos, electronic sounds, Afro-Latin beats, and powerful vocal harmonies align with the Australian land, creating a portal that connects the southern hemisphere and gives birth to an unknown genre called “Cumbia Oceanica”. Melbourne-based Colombian duo, Oscar Jimenez and Katherine Gailer, have a deep connection with their roots which they nurtured in their songlines; with a bilingual nature that allows the listener to discover connections between Australia's diverse cultural backgrounds.


Their music performances have captivated audiences at major festivals such as Womadelaide, Bluesfest, Queenscliff Festival plus international tours to the USA (SXSW), Colombia, Thailand, and Taiwan. Nominated for Best Global/Reggae Act (The Age Music Awards), their debut self-titled album got national recognition and featured international artists such as Tonolec (Argentina), QVLN (USA), Nhattyman (Ethiopia/Australia), and OKA (Australia).
