Génesis was a Colombian folk-rock band, very popular during the 1970s.[1][2] They are regarded as a significant part of the Colombian social progressive and hippy movements of the time.[3] Génesis is considered a pioneer in fusing rock music with the native folk music of Colombia.[4] Colombian icon Humberto Monroy of Los Speakers was a founding member and driving force behind the band.[5]
