The band ChocQuibTown was created in 2000 in a Columbian city Choco when Gloria and Miguel Martinez joined Carlos Valencia. The three young people were friends since childhood. Gloria and Martinez grew up in one family. Their father was a big music fan and the kids could always find a great disc to listen to. Carlos also loved music. The mutual hobby made their friendship even closer and led to creating a hip-hop group.

Valencia decided to devote himself to music before the others. He moved to Bogota and joined a hip-hop band Carbono while studying in the university. Gloria was getting a degree psychology while her brother Miguel was studying music on his own. When Gloria finished college, she moved to Bogota together with Miguel and joined Carlos. The creators of the famous hip-hop group Sidestepper tried to tempt Gloria into joining them but she was true to her friends.

In 2004, the banded performed at the Hip Hop al Parque festival in Bogota. They won a music contest and got 10 million pesos.

In 2006, the band signed a contract with Polen and released their first LP Somos Pacifico. When writing music, the trio tried to keep part of the traditional Columbian music while mixing it with other genres. Such an approach allowed the band to become famous and record several hit songs.
