Celebrating Colombia!

With Carolina Herrera, Los hermanos arias and Talentos Group


           

Come along for an evening of song and dance, celebrating the richness and vibrancy of Colombian culture.

The evening is an exciting opportunity to link our Listen to the World and Community Reconciliation Programmes. Over the last year, we have been supporting a small and committed transnational group, Rodeemos el Dialogo (Let us surround the dialogue). ReD consists of Colombians and friends of Colombia who support the Colombian peace talks, and believe in the power of a culture of dialogue to affect transformation and build sustainable peace. 

In support of the current peace talks, and amidst continued violence in the country, we want to show our solidarity with the work of ReD and organisations like them in building a peaceful future for the nation.

The evening will feature the Talentos Group London, Los hermanos arias and as a special guest, the talented Carolina Herrera!

Watch as the Talentos Group perform in the centre of London!

A guitar playing singer, Carolina's repertoire ranges from Mexico, Venezuela and Brazil to Spain and Portugal; and not forgetting an American song or two. Since her first appearance on Charlie Gillett's Saturday Night show on BBC London, Carolina has played the Queen Elizabeth Hall (as part of La Linea), Ronnie Scott's on Sunday (twice) and on Robert Elms' show on BBC London. She has also performed at the Radio 3 Village Stage WOMAD.

Los hermanos arias are a London-based multicultural trio on accordian, vocals and percussion, celebrating the Vallenato and Cumbia tradition. Jose Hernando Arias Noguera was chosen as the third protege in the BBC World Routes Academy 2012. He had the opportunity to participate in Colombia's legendary 'Festival Del Vallentato.' in Valledupar, Colombia.  His sister, Laura will be on vocals and Guiro percussion.
