More music:

Since colonial times, the music of the Colombian Pacific has been the expression of an entire people, through it the path to freedom, memory, and remembrance of its ancestors was found. It continues to be a voice against oppression.

The Pacific lives deeply in each one of us, its traditions and customs are part of our feelings. It is important today to also mention that peace is an opportunity to heal the debt we have with our Afro-Colombians. May peace and social justice be the guarantee of a dignified future for all.
