Musical Tour: Colombia
by Judy Cantor-Navas | July 17, 2013
This two-hour musical tour of Colombia will take you from the Caribbean to the Pacific, from cosmopolitan city centers to seaside towns rooted in Afro-Colombian culture. We'll cover vast and varied electro and acoustic landscapes lush with accordions, and be transported by the beat of drums. Our visa to Colombia covers access for musical genres that include cumbia, vallenato, champeta, salsa and canción. Groups like Palenke Soultribe tribe, Bomba Estereo, Monsieur Periné and Systema Solar will guide you over new, surprising and seductive territory, and you may encounter some old friends, like salsero Joe Arroyo, Aterciopelados and folkloric icon Toto La Momposina. Enjoy the tour!
