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.

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
