Get a Colombian music demonstration with a musician from Bogotá
Gregorio will take you on an interactive musical journey through Colombia, revealing some of the dozens of traditional rhythms that have evolved from Colombia’s tri-cultural fusion of indigenous, African, and Spanish influences.
He’ll show you how to make your own Colombian-inspired instruments using materials you already have at home. Together with Gregorio, you’ll build and play your DIY Colombian instrument as you learn all about the beats and folk music of South America. After your performance, you’ll have the opportunity to talk with Gregorio about his career—and even hear about his brushes with fame on the New York City Latin music scene.
