Target Group and Requirements

Content and Goals
When hearing folkloric rhythms like the Cumbia from the Caribbean coast of Colombia or the Currulao from the pacific no local would be able to sit still. It is no surprise then that many famous musicians with Colombian roots (like Shakira, Carlos Vines, Major Lazer, Bomba Estereo, Systema Solar, Palenque Soultribe and Che Sudaka) fuse and enrich their music with these rhythms – not only to fill the dance floor, but also as an homage to Colombian folklore. In this course we dedicate ourselves to these rhythms and dance to both traditional and contemporary compositions of Colombian musicians.
