Travel and Study
The artist will travel to Santa Marta, El Banco, Santa Cruz Mompox and Barranquilla, Colombia for 15 days. Tavera will travel the Magdalena municipality in Colombia to study, document, conduct interviews and capture the migration of Cumbia music and the culture of this region. Tavera is working on a new project about the Cumbia rhythm, a blend of African, Spanish and Indigenous sounds, which transcends Colombia as it has immigrated to Latin America and the world.
