Chontadelia (World Music from Colombia – FREE!)

April 21 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

FREE

The Exchange’s Art Cart will be on site from 5:30-7 p.m. with special all-ages activities.

Chontadelia is a seven-piece band rooted in the iconic marimba de chonta and steeped in the Pacific coast’s Afro-Colombian culture, identity and history.

Chontadelia has been making its mark since 2015 and has been noted for its socially engaged celebrations that voice the communities’ histories, stories, struggles and concerns.

Based in Bogotá, Columbia, the band completed its first tour to Panama in early March, just as the world was locking down in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.

What’s in a name? Chontadelia comes from the fusion of chonta, the wood that the marimba is made of, and delia, psychedelic sounds.
