Blu Internacional – Musical Duo

In 1992, Patricia Gras (USA/Argentina) and María Rimbau (Spain, Ecuador) founded Barandúa, a Latin folk and pop ban, with Carlos Gonzalez Rimbau, María’s brother, Luis Silva and Antonio Mazu both from Chile. Together they produced two CD’s, Barandúa Live and Our Songs. Later, Carlitos Gonzalez Blum (US/Spain) and Luis Montes de Oca (Méjico) replaced Luis and Antonio. In 2009, both María and Patricia were struck with breast cancer. To raise money for breast cancer survivors, the Barandúa band held a concert at the University of St. Thomas, Jones Hall to a full house. Following María’s treatment, they decided to become a duo, this time playing international music with the collaboration of sound engineer Mariela Massuh. They sing in Spanish, English, French, Italian, Russian, Arabic, and Portuguese. Blu International music duo performs at parties, weddings, concerts, and on ZOOM under quarantine!
