Price: €14.00

Synopsis

In Colom­bia, the already “spicy” Cuban Salsa is enriched with the country’s own tra­di­tional music and dances. The two cities of Cali and Bar­ran­quilla con­stantly com­pete for the title of “Salsa Cap­i­tal” at their fairs, shows, and car­ni­vals. The old steam­boats that once lined the har­bours have since been­re­placed by freighters, but these con­tinue to arrive laden with the lat­est albums of New York Salsa. Each car­ni­val is a cel­e­bra­tion of Salsa’s pop­u­lar­ity and is hon­oured with exotic and vibrant murals. In this coun­try rav­aged by endemic vio­lence, music has become one of the last expres­sions of “the good life”. Fea­tur­ing per­for­mances by: Joe Arroyo, Los Niches, and Raices.
