Afro-Colombian Music, Culture & Politics: Concert with Canalón de Timbiquí

Hailing from the town of Timbiquí on the Pacific coast of Colombia, Grupo Canalón, embodies traditional Afro-Colombian music. The voice of lead singer Nidia Góngora blends felicitously with the African-style chanting of a female chorus, backed by marimba and traditional percussion. This Conversational Concert brings together Grupo Canalón and Afro-Colombian music expert and Chair of BU Musicology & Ethnomusicology Michael Birenbaum Quintero to perform and talk about about Afro-Colombian music and culture, and the issues of race, history, politics, and economic development that affect Black life in Colombia. Presented by BU Latin American Studies, the BU Arts Initiative and BU Musicology & Ethnomusicology.
