La Boquilla is an afro-descendant fisher village that for more than 250 years until today still continues in a heroic struggle of cultural resistance to preserve their ancestral traditions, where drums play a leading role.
Today we invite you to an exciting tour to observe and play these Afro-Colombian wild drums in their habitat! For that reason: play it even if you don’t play, dance even if you don’t dance, sing even if you don’t sing…together we can! That is what a local proverb says…
Our Drum Workshop of about one hour duration, is a unique opportunity to connect yourself with the typical rhythms of Afro-Colombian folk music such as Cumbia, Mapalé and Champeta, through immersion by playing traditional drums.
The team of Batambora Drum Workshop School invites you to live an extraordinary experience; first a little theory, then a presentation and interaction: execution of Drums.
Batambora is a project led by a group of pushing young people from the Afro-descendant community of La Boquilla, who are commited to human and economic development that is aimed for rescuing and preserving the cultural traditions of the African heritage.
We like to support young people who make a difference and we are warmly inviting you to experience it!
