TITMW.com Presents… Los Ritmos de Colombia Mixtape

Bomba Estéreo en Vivo en Bogotá Bomba Estéreo en Vivo en Bogotá

T he music of Colombia is vast (just check out this wikipedia entry), ranges from all styles and genres. Here truly exists a culture that prides itself on movement and expression through rhythm and melody. And while living and traveling in this country over the  past 6 months, I’ve truly had the pleasure of experiencing all of its musical varieties.

So to welcome all of you beautiful people of the interwebs to TellittomeWalking.com, I’ve decided to put together this Mixtape in honor of all the sonic greatness coming out of this country.

This is by far not a comprehensive listing, just a little sample of mainly contemporary flavors, though I snuck a few classics into the mix, that have caught my ears attention.


And if you dig, leave us a comment down below, I’d love to hear your feedback.

Also, if you have any other Colombian tracks or bands or sounds you can recomend, I’d love to put together a second volume.

Por ahora, les digo que A-Z-O-T-E-M-O-S  B-A-L-D-O-S-A!
