Las Rucas de Bahía Solano

Las Rucas’ objective is to recover the cultural heritage of Bahiá Solano in Chocó State, Columbia. It’s a group that wants to present their indigenous musical expressions such as romances, aruyos, chigualos, gualis and rucas. 18 women are members of the group and they want to pass these practices and knowledge from the old to the young women, and thus ensure the sustainability of these practices.

To get more of their background and details check the introduction (in Spanish).

I had the enormous pleasure to see them in action.
Magic moments!
Many thanks to all!
