CHAMPE TOUR WITH CHARLES KING
USD92 per person
Champeta is the music of Cartagena! This musical genre was born in the afro-descendant areas of Cartagena and is influenced by African and Antillean rhythms linked to the tradition and cultural heritage of San Basilio de Palenque. In the beginning, it was considered as marginalized music and badly seen among the highest social strata of the city.
The champeta has transcended borders and after being forbidden in Colombia for a while, it has become a lifestyle. It is a social and cultural phenomenon that is gaining more and more followers every day. It is listened by those people who live in the poorest and most popular communities up to those ones who live in the most exclusive areas.
Traveler away, if you like music and dance, you will enjoy a day of unique experiences; you will be able to know the origins of the champeta and its history, walking with Charles Kin which is an icon of the champeta and through the passages of the typical and popular market of Bazurto where he took his first steps to fame.
One of the most beautiful ways to travel is to learn the meaning of the cultures of the region you visit, experience and understand the reason for their customs, this experience will allow you to meet local people who are very kind and willing to teach you all their culture and dance history, their steps, infect yourself with their joy and ¨sabor¨, understand their language, listen to their music, get to know their neighborhood and market, taste their food, and enrich yourself with the true Colombian coastal culture, so relax, know, learn, enjoy, dance, smile and repeat.
You will learn how to move with the Champeta flow with one of the most famous singers of Cartagena and champeta dancers 100% native from Cartagena.
Follow the footsteps of this cheerful and Caribbean rhythm that invites you to have fun and live the music!
