music from colombia

25 Mar

hello,

i want to recommend you this amazing group from Colombia, called Herencia de Timbiqui

“El grupo Herencia de Timbiquí, toma su nombre del municipio del mismo nombre y está conformado por afrodescendientes orgullosos de sus raíces africanas y quienes se han dado a la tarea de retomar el conocimiento musical empírico del Pacifico Colombiano y mezclarlo con elementos de la música urbana contemporánea, para así producir una sonoridad de orden global pero centrada en la raíz negra de nuestro litoral.”

The Group Herencia de Timbiqui has is name from a village at the pacific coast of Colombia. The musicians are all proud afro-colombians, who want to make the music from the Pacific again more popular. They mix the traditional music with elements from the urban styles in order to reach a global sound however centered around the “black” music of the region.

and the best: they will probably be touring Europe in summer!
