For 30 years Los Gaiteros de Ovejas have performed the sound of the Gaita in the interior of the Caribbean coast of Colombia. In 2017, the second generation of the Gaiteros launched “Antología Musical”, a discography with a compilation of 30 of its songs, and a new musical work entitled Pa'Amanecé, produced by five-time Grammy winner Christian Catagno (producer of Bomba Estereo , Systema Solar). At the end of 2017 they participated in the remix Everything Now of the Canadian band Arcade Fire with Bomba Estereo and they were invited to play at the Arcade Fire concert in Bogotá. Los Gaiteros offer concerts, instrument play and building workshops, knowledge exchange talks. In 2018 they were selected for Showcase in Circulart (Medellín, Colombia) and they also were part of the Official Colombian Womex Delegation 2018 (World Music Expo. Canarias, Spain) represented by Loa Productora. The work of Los Gaiteros de Ovejas originates in the field, from the sowing of the seed as raw material for the construction of their instruments.
