A Trópico-Venezuelan Band in the Bay Area.

Bululú, a dynamic latin music band led by Lali Mejia and Jose Roberto Hernandez (music director), showcases a live and flavorful repertoire deeply rooted in Venezuelan and Caribbean influences. Styles of music include tamboreras, calipsos, salsa, porros, parrandas, cumbias, vallenatos, tambores de la costa, and more. Fun and vibrant, Bululú delivers top notch entertainment with its ten piece ensemble, all highly seasoned Bay Area musicians—Jose Roberto Hernandez (lead vocals, guitar, cuatro), Ruthie Dineen (piano), Miguel Govea (lead vocals, trumpet, accordion), Lali Mejia (percussion, vocals), Omar Ledezma Jr. (drum set, vocals), Peta Robles (percussion), Fernanda Bustamante (violin, vocals), Lichi Fuentes (vocals, percussion), Norma Kansau (lead vocals) and Kevin Silveira (bass).

You will love Bululú! They are a multi-talented, spirited group of Venezuelan, Mexican, South American and Bay Area musicians who play up-beat, soulful rhythms blending traditional and modern sounds. The number of percussion players on stage alone, will wow you. I’ve heard the band several times and each time I hear them play, my heart sings and then my feet just gotta move. If you want your guests to have fun and a party to really come alive, call Bululú!

Bululú was the best choice for our wedding! We got the music we wanted, and we felt like we were in our own country! The party was on all the time, full of enthusiasm, rhythm y sabor! We loved it and we will always remember our wedding! Thank you Bululú!
