Colombian Independence Celebration TOMORROW (Sunday 22nd) with "Los Gaiteros De San Jacinto"

For the past couple of months I've had the pleasure of working with FolkColombia and CTMD organizing a beautiful event for the celebration of the Independence of Colombia. In this FREE and OUTDOOR event we will have live performance of both music and dance from all the different regions of Colombia by great local artist. Best of all, our feature guest are the legendady Latin-Grammy Winners "Los Gaiteros De San Jacinto" who are considered an institution in the "Gaita-music" tradition and who will transport you with their music to the Montes de Maria in the Caribbean Coast of Colombia.

Here's the flyer with all the information and I look forward to seeing you all there.
