A Discussion With Los Gaiteros de San Jacinto [Behind the Scenes Documentary]
In this video, watch a discussion with Los Gaiteros de San Jacinto. Their album 'Un Fuego de Sangre Pura: Los Gaiteros de San Jacinto from Colombia' is out on Smithsonian Folkways and is a 2007 Latin Grammy Winner. 'Un Fuego de Sangre Pura: Los Gaiteros de San Jacinto from Colombia' available on CD and Digital. Stream/download/purchase: Smithsonian Folkways: Spotify: With 'Un Fuego de Sangre Pura (A Fire of Pure Blood),' the roots of the cumbia thrive in the music of Los Gaiteros de San Jacinto from Colombia's violence-torn Caribbean hinterlands. The sounds of long-tubed gaita flutes, unique drums, and maraca stoke the fire of the cumbia and of other regional dances—the fast-paced puya and porro, the cadential gaita corrida, and the bullerengue. Los Gaiteros de San Jacinto, the senior statesmen of their tradition, are an animated emblem of Colombian nationhood and a resilient fountainhead for some of Latin America's favorite dance rhythms.
