This week we bring very special invitadx DJ Alex DB to get into some of the musical traditions of Colombia. We leave behind more well-known paisas – your J Balvins and Malumas – in favor of digging into vallenatos, sextetos, and AfroColombian musical traditions from what was probably the first free black community in the Americas. There is no way to cover the nuances and diversity of music of Colombia in six songs, pero we hope that this selection encourages you to search for más y más!
Featuring music by El Combo De Las Estrellas, Genio El Del Canto Bello, Adassa, Alejo Duran, Sexteto Tabalá, and Kombilesa Mi.
