Bazurto All Stars is a musical group from Cartagena that fuses champeta with other rhythms such as Brazilian funk and pop, and has shown that with effort and perseverance anything is possible, as they have announced the dates of their world tour.

"With preparation, joy and dedication, we are ready to put champeta music at the top, a genre that identifies us to the world. It will be an international tour where we will bring our culture," said Fredy Harel, vocalist of Bazurto All Stars.

The Cartageneros will be in Europe taking the champeta to many cities of the old continent, a tour without precedent in the history of the champeta genre, with this tour they intend to highlight the Afro-Caribbean culture of Cartagena, Bolivar and the entire Colombian north coast in the largest festivals and various scenarios in the world.

The group had already been touring since 2015 in Europe, the United States and Canada. This is the largest international tour that champeta has had, there are 24 shows in Europe for 2 months from May 28th to July 29th and 8 shows between the United States and Canada from September 14th to October 15th.

"Since we started this project called 'Bazurto All Stars' we always dreamed of this moment, it is an incredible achievement to make the global tour official, I have a lot to thank all the people who have always been with us," said Anibal Hernandez Banda "Hanibal", leader of the group.
