Gregorio Uribe Big Band

Led by the charismatic singer and accordionist Gregorio Uribe, this 16-piece orchestra blends ­cumbia and other Colombian rhythms with powerful big-band arrangements. The group has wowed crowds from The Kennedy Center to the Celebrate Brooklyn Festival; the spirited Uribe was even named one of the “100 Most Successful Colombians Abroad” by the country’s government.
