Dinamicos

Dinámicos came into fruition in September 1986. It is a combination of the Allard Family, relatives and close friends. The group is not bogged down by regulations because it has persisted in maintaining the family atmosphere that has been its principal cohesive force, since its formation. This sense of family-life and togetherness constitutes the indisputable core of resilience, that has helped Dinámicos to rise and achieve its many successes. Its repertoire of music is largely original and composed by Francisca and Philip Allard.
