Colombia National Day Concert

Colombia National Day Concert

TOKYO —

With the vitality of Colombian traditional Atlantic Coast music bullerengue; the romanticism of Colombian guitar tiple; the energy of Japanese drums and the deepness of koto sounds, Colombia will commemorate its National Day with a free concert at Tokyo’s Hibiya Park on July 17.

Japanese drum group Kuryu and koto national champion group Waon will be not only interpreting Japanese traditional rhythms but will fuse their music with Colombian performers on stage to create a truly unique and exciting exchange opportunity.

The event will start at 12 noon and last until 5 p.m.

Colombian musicians include Maria Mulata, formed by four drummers and a vocalist, Diana Hernández, who will showcase the music of San Basilio de Palenque town. This group has performed in several countries, such as Nicaragua, Costa Rica, Dominican Republic, El Salvador, Guatemala, Mexico, Chile, South Africa, France, Germany and Belgium. Another performer from Colombia is nationally acclaimed composer Pedro Nel Martínez, who will be accompanied by musician Roberto Martínez.
