We will start with a brief introduction of the geographical and cultural origin of this music and a demonstration of some of its rhythms, which includes Bunde, Currulao, Rumba, and Juga among others. We will embark on a unique musical journey through the instruments used in the villages of the rural Pacific Coast of Colombia. These traditional instruments include the Marimba de Chonta, the Cununos and Bombos, the Guasá and the Voices. We will show you how the alluring sounds of each instrument create a beautiful polyrhythmic texture when played together. No musical experience is required as we will explore these rhythms in a fun and accessible collective dynamic.

We will also have the opportunity to enjoy some of the flavors of the Pacific prepared by the expert hands of a chef form the region. The taste of the sea and the sweet earthiness of the viche, a local sugar cane liquor will transport us, along with the music to Pacific Coast, making this a unique multi-sensory experience!

What to expect


We will learn how to play the traditional Rhythms of the Colombian Pacific Coast. You don't have to worry if you're a musician or not, the experience is designed so everyone can join in a very gentle and fun way. We will share some histories of the rites and rhythms of the Afro-Colombian communities on the Pacific Coast, and while we do all this, we will have a taste of the ancestral drinks of the region, and understand its medicinal and spiritual context.
