In the 70’s African music invaded Cartagena and as time went by the Cartageneros did not understand the language of the lyrics of this rhythm, so they create what is known today as CHAMPETA MUSIC. The sound of the champeta is directly related to that of the Congolese rumba and Zaire, the soukous of Central Africa and this same sound of the popular neighborhoods of the Colombian Caribbean made the 2020 Super Bowl dance through the movements of Shakira, a of the most important artists of our country.
Champeta music simulates the beat of the African notes but using the Spanish language and its name comes from the machetilla called champeta by the popular class.
In this experience we will know about this music and its culture, the history that has made this genre discriminated and wanted by others, we will live a completely Cartagena experience with local flavor. We will learn to move our hips to the sound of the champeta, and we will experience a “picó” dance, in these dances the sound of great sound equipment leads hundreds of people to live the popular culture. We will dance on stage while we cool off with beer and we will undoubtedly immerse ourselves in the true Cartagena.
