Totó La Momposina

La Bodega (Astar Artes)

Totó La Momposina grew up with the music of Colombia’s coastal region, formed from the currents of Spain, Africa and Native America in colonial times. She is a soulfully expressive singer, fronting a band whose pounding African percussion provides the power for chanted choruses, hot horn charts, elegantly haunting flute and rhythms similar to the cumbia and salsa familiar to fans of Latin-American dance.
