Latin Roots #41: The Caribbean Coast Of Colombia - August 22, 2013

When Catalina Maria Johnson told us she wanted to highlight the “coastal music “of Colombia we didn’t even consider that there would be two parts to that because there are two coasts! Today we look at the music of Colombia’s Caribbean coast with a couple of selections that indicate the isolation of African slaves on either coast.
For her older example it is Petronia Martinez and her family. For a more modern example it is the music of Lido Pimienta who is part of a large Colombian population living in Toronto. Lido uses traditional elements but records on her laptop.
