Me gusta la champeta pero no le digas a nadie

Posted on 02 December 2014 by Andrés

The Champeta is a young genre of folk music and dance originating in the Atlantic coastal regions of Colombia around Palenke and Cartagena. It is a mixture out of African Spices (mainly Soukous and Highlife), Bullerenge, Cumbia, Rap and Reggae (check the Dance Moves in the Film.) Champeta Dances often are open Air Events with walls of Speakers as they are used in the Soundsystem Culture. So we found a real cool film made by Danilo Acosta, unfortunately it is only in spanish.
