Genesis de Colombia biography
GÉNESIS, also known as GÉNE, GÉNE-SIS, GÉNESIS DE COLOMBIA, GROUPO GÉNESIS and briefly as MAÍZ, were one of the earliest Colombian bands to fuse rock with tradition folk instrumentation and progressive, sometimes psychedelic arrangements. The band were formed by Umberto Monroy, former guitarist for THE SPEAKERS, during a period where he was involved with a hippie commune based near a monastery in a village south of Bogota.

The band would go on to release eight studio records before disbanding in 1992 after the Monroy's death.

Review by Br4v3r

4 stars in Colombia, the proggresive rock is very unknown and we don't have a lot of bands of this genre, but there's a few famous bands in the underground scene that a lot of people like, Genesis been the most important one. In this album el paso de los andes (the way of the andes), Humberto Monroy create his songs whit a lot of influence of the indigenous people of the centre of the country in the andes mountains, as we can see in all the instrumental and lyrics of the album. The lyrics in more than half of the album talk about love, which is a very common theme in colombian folk, and in the rest of the songs, Humberto sings about the life, the nature, the streets and the people of Colombia and latinamerica, except in el paso de los andes and la guaneña, those are instrumentals, and the most progressive ones. And talking about instrumentals, the thing that i most like about the album is the flute, but the guitar, drums and other instruments are very good too. Fun fact: my music teacher is Cosme Castañeda, the guy who make the flute in this album, and he is also the reason of why i met this band
Thanks to ClemofNazareth for the artist addition.
