Fronted by singer Karla Kanora, Rio Mira is an exciting recording collaboration
between artists from neighbouring Ecuador and Colombia. Their debut album,
released on a ZZK's sub label AYA Records is produced by Iván Benavides (involved
in Latin Grammy-winning groups like Choq Quib Town and Gaiteros de San Jacinto)
and Ivis Flies (producer of Latin Grammy-winning social heritage project De Taitas y
Mamas) and is guided by the distinctive percussive tones of the marimba.
This socially conscious project, based out of the coastal town of Esmeraldas in
Ecuador and the city of Cali in Colombia is becoming a symbol of Afro-Pacific
identity. The story of marimba is so closely intertwined with rebel slaves, known as
maroons, who made the region their home from the early 16th century onward. There
is a tangible celebratory feeling to this music. In 2015, UNESCO declared the
marimba music of South Pacific Colombia and Esmeraldas Province, Ecuador to be
Intangible Cultural Heritage.
Taking its name from the river, which runs from Ecuador into Colombia, the band Rio
Mira is living proof of the rich history of the northwesterly Pacific coast. Recalling the
history of the Pacific, the music is a reminder of the unity, which binds together a
region divided up by state borders.
Rio MIra’s lyrics share stories of traditional value. ‘Román Román’, the first official
single to be taken from the album, is a good example of the softly enchanting allure
of the music. An ode to the intimate connection the El Pacífico communities have
with the rivers, it also features a poem by writer Jalisco González from Esmeraldas.
Driven by the cyclical, interlocking patterns of the marimba, the music combines
regular interjections of call-and-response, with rhythm and melody intimately
interconnected: A tribute to El Pacífico.
