Visit the land of a thousand rhythms
As the nigh-on impenetrable Darién Gap opens up into northern Colombia the dense brushland and swamps fade away, welcoming beautiful landscapes and stunning vistas over the Gulf of Urabá. Colombia boasts a similarly variable and expansive musical output, with traditional cumbia sounds that evoke pastoral settings jostling with the hip-hop firebrands of Medellín for attention.
Our two-week sojourn to the country with Songlines Music Travel in August 2019 offers a chance to explore Escobar’s stomping ground, the country’s capital, hear champeta on the Caribbean coast and dance salsa to your heart’s content, all under the expert guidance of writer and regular Songlines contributor Russ Slater.
