(unofficial) colombian week
Posted August 21st, 2011 - 10:11 pm by from Berlin, Germany (Permalink)
Hola amantes del baile!

Lets see what is this week bringing us:

-> Jorge is a member of our group that lives in Malaga (there are -by the way- good prices on flights between Berlin and Malaga for October the 26). And Jorge (username Marbellero) is coming to Berlin next Wednesday... and we will go to Bundespressestrand (Wednesday will be a sunshiny day)... so I hope I´ll see you there (specially the new members).

-> Like a wrote before, "La Mula Santa" will be offering a concert again, on Thursday the 25th. Is Cumbia... the purest colombian cumbia + Chilean rock sounds... hope you dont miss it (here the link -> http://www.lacueva-berlin.de/images/stories/mula_25.jpg )

-> And I just saw that next saturday, a hommage to Joe Arroyo is taking place at misalsa.
Joe is one of the colombian salsa leyends that sadly past away last month.
His music is far more than just gut rythms. There are very simbolic songs like "no le pegue a mi negra", that tells us about the times of slavery from the slave point of view. We all dance and enjoy his music but his songs also tell us black-culture stories.
Another (great) song is Yamulemau, which is an African word related to a child. Joe never forgot his african roots, and how they developed once africans were in America... he also speaks from Chango in many of his songs... and if we meet next saturday, I´ll tell you who was this "Chango" ;)


so far so good, have a nice start of the week.
