¡COLOMBIAN FOLKLORE CLASS!

¡Colombia is full of culture!. Cumbia and other representative rhythms are part of the legacy that African gave to this country. Every moment of these dancings means happiness and a special reunion with all of us ancestors. 

Africa has lived in  the culture of Cartagena since native people from this continent were brought as slaves to build an incredible wall to protect the city against attacks of pirates. Music was an important means of communication to express feelings and sometimes news. The legacy this continent left us is still alive in many traditions of  our country. Our dances are rooted in African sounds that have transcended generations. Our folklore will be an eternal legacy  we want to share with the world.

To experience the ancestral art of drums we will go to the fishing village of "La Boquilla". Here, we will meet our native friends who will help us to learn and enjoy this dance. We will take our classes, learning the basic strokes of the "tambor alegre", and playing the Colombian cumbia.
