The Colombian Embassy in Helsinki: Virtual, Projection of the documentary “PORRO HECHO EN COLOMBIA

We are pleased to send you the invitation to participate in the virtual screening of the documentary Porro hecho en Colombia, which is part of the program of the cultural initiative called FestIBAL, in which the Ibero-American embassies based in the city of Helsinki participate.

Porro hecho en Colombia is an interesting journey through the origins of one of the most characteristic and joyful rhythms of the Caribbean. From the Department of Córdoba (Colombia), a mixture of races and culture, a land where everything is sung, from livestock to agricultural work and of course parties, breaks and meetings, the Porro was born, with musical bases that bring it closer in a way, to jazz. The film is a tribute to Porro and its links with other rhythms such as bullerengue, mapalé and fandango.
