Video Title:
“Mi mulata” by REBOLU at the 2022 Smithsonian Folklife Festival
Description:
The fluttering sound of the gaita flute is emblematic of the Afro-Colombian community along the Atlantic and Caribbean coast. On July 1, that sound reverberated across the National Mall as REBOLU took the stage at the 2022 Smithsonian Folklife Festival. The group, based in New York City, brought the music of the Black Atlantic to the D.C., performing songs off their new album from Smithsonian Folkways Recordings, Mi Herencia (My Heritage). Gaita player and ensemble co-founder Ronald Polo wrote “Mi mulata” (My Mulatta) for his eldest daughter and bandmate, Isabella, in the form of a chalupa, a faster variant of cumbia with call-and-response vocal melodies.
