About Colombian Caribbean Folk with Concha Bernal
Within the framework of the celebration of the National Day of Colombia, the Colombian Embassy to Ireland is delighted to invite you to a Caribbean Folk show with artist from Santa Marta Concha Bernal.
Concha Bernal is a singer and songwriter from Santa Marta on the Colombian Caribbean coast.
Her staging is overflowing with joy and spontaneity while incorporating Colombian folklore with a contemporary edge.
The show will include cumbia, champeta or mapale. Bernal’s remarkable stage presence feeds from her collaboration with designer and craftswoman Keyla Chipiaje, to inundate the show with colour, the mesh of cultures and ancestral designs that converge in Colombia’s Caribbean coast.
