Colombian Music in New York

Hear this show now: | Add or read comments



Diego Obregon, Martin Vejarano, Johanna Castañeda, Ronald Polo, Morris Cañate.

Over the coming weeks, New York's Center for Traditional Music and Dance (CTMD) is presenting a series of workshop / performances at the Queens Museum of Art in Flushing Meadows Corona Park (free) and the Taller Latino Americano, 2710 Broadway at W 104 St (cheap!) featuring musicians from the Colombian emigre community.

On today's show, live music and chat with several of the artists to be featured, including: Martin Vejarano of the band La Cumbiamba eNeYe who introduces the gaita (end-blown flute), accompanied by fellow gaitero Camilo Rodriguez; Diego Obregon of Grupo Chonta (named after the wood from which he makes his marimbas); cuatro (small guitar) player Johanna Castañeda who introduces the llanero music of the plains of Colombia and Venezuela; and Ronald Polo and Morris Cañate of the rocking percussion-driven ensemble Grupo Rebolú.

Big thanks to CTMD's Colombian Community Initiative project director, folklorist Gabrielle Hamilton, who also joined us briefly on mic at the top of the session. And to our illustrious engineer Mark Koch and assistant Alon Namdar for a great job.
