Interview with Toto la momposina in a very special concert at the Barbican marking the bicentenary of Colombia’s independence in 2010, also a music tribute by different artists around the world.

Legendary Colombian vocalist Toto la Momposina brings together the music of three races, indigenous porro, puya and gaita with Afro-Latin cumbia, mapale and sexteto. Toto was born in the northern Colombian village of Talaigua, in the island of Mompos. As its name suggests, Talaigua was once an Indigenous land.
