Totó la Momposina Meets Berklee, featuring the Colombian singer, dancer, and teacher. She embodies the mingling of Colombia’s African, indigenous Indian, and Spanish cultures that make a unique musical tradition. La Momposina will perform her songbook with a large student ensemble, playing arrangements by contemporary writing and production majors.
Student groups open the show, performing several of la Momposina’s songs. La Momposina will take the stage joined by her son and musical director Marco Vinicio Oyaga on the alegre drum, and special guest, Colombian singer-songwriter, alumna trustee Monica Giraldo, who made the initial connection between Berklee and la Momposina.
