  • Celebrate Colombian Independence Day with one of the most celebrated artists within the Afro-Colombian genre of dance music known as Champeta Criolla. Charles King is one of the pioneers of this high-energy music which blends African styles like Soukous and highlife with Colombian Chalupa. Over the last 25 years, Charles has been a key figure in the spread of this infectious music from his hometown of San Basilio de Palenque to Cartagena, where it has become that city's signature dance music, and beyond. Join us for a rare opportunity to experience a truly unique musical style ands come prepared to dance.
