Sonidos Colombianos presents the music from one of the most culturally diverse countries of Latin America: Colombia! Every Friday night join us as we explore the sounds from the legendary world of Macondo. Our bilingual musical tour is guaranteed to include not only cumbia, but also the guitar-based bambuco from the Andean region, the harp llanero music from the Eastern Plains, the marimba-infused currulao from the Pacific Region, and the accordion-driven vallenato of the North Atlantic Coast. Sonidos Colombianos also features the big band music from the 50's, to the newer afro-caribbean music called champeta. And let's not forget the salsa from Cali, the "salsa capital of South America". The last program of each month focuses on one specific musical genre, group or composer. Since the show's inception on January 13, 1991, Sonidos Colombianos has interviewed numerous local and international musical groups such as Foncho Castellar y sus Alegres de Colombia, Alquimia, Grupo Niche, Miguel Morales, Pablo Mayor-Folkore Urbano, Grupo Naidy, Coba, Daniel Fetecua y Pajarillo Pinta'o, and Lucía Pulido.
