Nidia Gongora's: Canalón de Timbiquí

  • Nells Jazz & Blues 3 North End Road London, England, SW6 1PD United Kingdom (map)

Nidia Gongora

Canalon’s music is all about ancestral sounds from the Afro-Colombian Pacific Coast which recreates all the power and rhythm of the chonta marimba, with ist guasa and bombo. Their melodies and lyrics talk about the jungle, the river, the miners and all things that happen in the town they come from. Hailing from the town of Timbiquí in Cauca state on the Pacific Coast, the female singers are led by Nidia Góngora and are supported by a band using a range of traditional percussive instruments such as the tambora drum and the xylophone-style marimba.
