La Mojarra Electrica 2009 Concert - Video Review

La Mojarra Electrica, new Afro-Colombian urban music. This extraordinary 12-piece creates an eclectic mix of Afro beats and traditional Colombian music. Firmly rooted in traditions specific to Colombian coastal towns and regions, from the 'bullerengue', the 'chalupa', and the 'aguabajo' from Guapi, Timbiqui and Turnaco on the Pacific side, through the region of Cauca, to towns with a rich musical history on the Atlantic coast, such as San Basílio de Palenque. The unique aquatic element of La Mojarra's sound is produced by the 'marimba de chonta', a traditional instrument passed-down over generations.
