Daniela Serna is a Bogotá-based composer, percussionist and
sound artist. As both a performer and educator, she has worked in traditional
Colombian cumbia, porro, fandgo and currulao music styles, as well as global
rock and pop. She is the founder of two active ensembles: Aguasalá, an
all-female Caribbean folk band and La Mera Arrabalera, a sextet fusing tropical
raspa music with latin jazz and merengue. She recently presented
“Bullerengue Covers,” a sound installation exploring the sonics of
tambour alegre (hand drum) and surrounding space. In 2012, Daniela won a Señal
Radio Colombia contest to perform with legendary folk-singer Petrona Martínez.
