Canalon de Timbiqui Nidia Gongora?s legendary folklore ensemble, brought together three generations of the finest marimba de chonta music families of the Pacific Coast of Colombia for these unique recordings. DESCRIPTION Nidia Gongora has gained international reputation for her work with Quantic and projects such as Ondatropica. In Colombia, Nidia leads Canal?n de Timbiqu?, one of the greatest bands preserving the legacy of marimba music in the South Pacific region of the country. A sound that has given voice to the afro descendent communities in an area that is both, one the last purest jungles on earth and the place where Colombian internal conflict has had its deepest impact. Canalon de Timbiqui?s music is a mystical journey to the sound of the jungle through the history of a community that has strongly preserved their African cultural heritage, a unique sound that reflects religious syncretism in powerful rhythms lead by seasoned women singers. De mar y r?o is currulao, bunde, juga and alabao in its purest form. Deep enchanting choir vocals and heavy percussion delight from the Pacific Coast jungle of Colombia.
