Yerba Colorá is an international alterlatino (alternative/latin) band, formed in

2016 and based in Marburg, Germany.

A melting pot of sound, Yerba Colorá seamlessly combines Latin rhythms with

elements of psychedelic rock, folk and reggae. The band’s unique signature

sound is defined by captivating melodies, soaring guitar solos and a

powerhouse rhythm section. Gritty Spanish lyrics explore topics ranging from

everyday struggles to social injustice and the importance of empathy and unity

in tumultuous times.

2021. Described by Christian Carlisle (BBC Introducing, Sheffield) as “a heady,

intoxicating mix”, Yerba Colorá’s music has enjoyed airplay on BBC Introducing

and BBC Radio 6, as well as having been featured on German stations such as

Radio Z. The band’s third EP will be released in spring 2023.

Yerba Colorá stands for empowerment, acceptance, authenticity, defiance and

joy as an act of rebellion.

Bicking (bass), Wiley Sil (drums) and Sibori Zuñiga Molina (percussion).
