Every day this week Soundway Records will be posting a new video on their website, each video has been filmed in a different corner of the world but are all full of life (and death) as you’ll see by this first clip chosen by the man behind the recent Palenque Palenque compilation, Lucas Silva.
This film is dedicated to the African culture in Colombia. Traditional rhythms bring us back to the past, to the ancestors and the bonds with Africa. Modern music played by young people brings us back to the present. On the Colombian Caribbean coast, African drums have played out since the time of the colonies. Initially there was Cumbia and Bullerengue, African rhythms brought back by the slaves and then there was music from Cuba which arrived in Colombia during the 1920s.
