Poligamia is a Colombian rock band founded in Bogota, Colombia in the early '90s by Andres Cepeda, Juan Gabriel Turbay, Freddy Camelo, Gustavo Gordillo and Cesar Lopez. All five attended Emilio Valenzuela High School in Bogota where they started playing together.

Their first album Una Cancion was produced and released in 1993 by Sony Music, after the group won a local battle of the bands for a local radio station by composing and singing Bailando sobre tu Piel. The album main hits were: "Desvanecer" composed by Turbay, "Una Cancion," "Mi Generacion" and "Beverly Hills." The song "Beverly Hills" was made in reference to the TV-series Beverly Hills 90210, famous in the local television at the time.

Their second album was released in 1995 under the title "Vueltas y Vueltas." The main hits were "Confusion" by Turbay and "Fue Solo Amor."

The final studio album was released in 1996. Unfortunately it did not receive great acceptance from the audience partly because it did not have any major hit.

Poligamia decided to break up in 1998 as each member decided to follow different careers in music and production. The farewell concert was programmed as the first in a festival with different rock bands from Bogota and was recorded as a live album named Buenas Gracias - Muchas Noches that included a live performance of the band's main hits and a new song "Hasta que venga la manana." The album included a bonus track named "Ciertas Cosas." This song was later re-recorded by Andres Cepeda in his first solo album Se Morir.

Sony Music released a greatest hits album in 2001.
