Set List

  • Grupo Naidy, "Una Mananita" (Arriba Suena Marimba: Currulao Marimba Music From Columbia)
  • Herencia de Timbiqui, "Y Que" (Tambó)

In this edition of Latin Roots, Catalina Maria Johnson, from the Chicago-based program Beat Latino, plays music from Colombia's coastal areas where most of the country's Afro-Colombia population lives. The Pacific coastline is dominated by the sound of marimba. Johnson plays a traditional example from Grupo Naidy, and then we get to hear how Herencia De Tabiqui puts a younger, more contemporary spin on that tradition.
