☝On stage, The Bongo Hop is the equivalent of a tropical storm served with hot brass, infectious Afro grooves, electric sounds, and heavenly vocals. His first album, Satingarona pt.1, was acclaimed as a remarkable genre-bending achievement. Meanwhile, their second album Satingarona pt.2 is also earning success. In preparation for the recording of a third album, The Bongo Hop earlier this year released "La Ñapa" a mini album with remixes, bonus tracks and some new songs.
☝Nidia Góngora is a singer/songwriter from the remote river village of Timbiquí, an Afro-Colombian community, whose location and cultural contrasts provide endless inspiration. Now based in Cali, she is considered one of the foremost artists of the typical marimba music of the South Pacific region, a guardian of the oral tradition and was awarded the title of ‘Afro-Colombian of the Year’ by Color de Colombia and El Espactador. Fronting leading regional outfits including Grupo Canalon and Canalón de Timbiquí (who were nominated in the Latin Grammy Awards for Best Folk Album), Góngora inspires many from the region with her techniques and work.
