Lisandro Meza Biography

Lisandro Meza (sometimes misspelled as Lisandro Mesa) played an important role in the evolution of Cumbia, the traditional big band dance music of Colombia.

A master of vallenato sabanero, an accordion-driven style of music, he forged a sound that has been described as "a cross between rural Dominican merengue, Louisiana zydeco, and Tex-Mex norteño." Meza initially attracted attention as a founding member of Los Corraleros de Majagual, one of Colombia's most popular bands in the 1960s. Since then, Meza has continued to influence the music of Colombia and Latin America through his numerous solo releases.
