Grupo Canalon live in the UK!

Hailing from the town of Timbiquí on the Pacific coast of Colombia, Grupo Canalón are a multi-membered outfit, best known for their rootsy rhythms. The voice of lead singer Nidia Góngora blends felicitously with the African-style chanting of a female chorus, backed by marimba and folkloric percussion. Between touring and recording, several of the group’s members still dig for gold in the mines around Timbiquí!
