Program Description
From Cartagena's gorgeous old city to the rough and tumble streets and beaches of La Boquilla, this episode of Music Voyager provides entree into the beauty, rhythms and culture of this colorful city. Colombia's beautiful Caribbean coast gave rise to cumbia, the iconic Colombian rhythm now popular in nearly every corner of Latin America. Host Jacob Edgar discovers sights of Cartagena da Indias alongside Toto la Momposina, one of the most respected figures in Colombian music, who performs with her band on the beach as local children dance along. Cartagena also bounces to the hot sound of champeta, a blending of contemporary African styles like Congolese soukouss, Nigerian Afrobeat and South African mbaqanga with Latin and Caribbean grooves. Champeta star Louis Towers performs in the bustling Basurto market, and producer Lucas Silva guides Edgar on a tour of Cartagena's famous nightlife. Later, Charles King takes Edgar to hear the popular and extremely loud Rey de Rochas sound system.
