Caspians + Toto la Momposina

toto + caspian.jpg

We will open for the legendary Toto la Momposina tomorrow in Stuttgart (Germany).

She is an amazing performer of traditional Colombian music from the Caribbean coastline, which she has dedicated her life to collecting, interpreting and performing. This is the music of the indigenous who fled (with their flutes) into the forests from the arriving Spanish, and were soon joined by runaway African slaves who also fled (with their drums), and who then started falling in love.

And if you''re not a world music junky like the writer of the last paragraph, let us put it another way: she just rocks.

Do stop by and get swept away.
