Totó la Momposina, the world’s best known representative of
Colombia’s traditional music, will perform in Bogotá on
both February 6 and 7.
The 61-year old singer from Mompox, Bolivár has released albums since 1983 and has garnered increasing international acclaim since Peter Gabriel decided to put her album ‘La Candela Viva’ out on his RealWorld label.
Totó la Momposina, whose real name is Sonia Bazanta Vides, comes from a family that’s been involved in traditional Colombian music for generations. Her children also are musicians.
The diva of traditional music will perform in Bogotá’s Roberto Arias Pérez theater. Tickets can be purchased online.
