CANDELITA - in conversation about Vallenato

On November the 17th we bring you our first instalment of Candelita ‘in conversation’, which will be an exploration into one of the most popular and culturally significant music genres in Colombia, Vallenato.

Founded in the early 19th century the word shares its meaning with ‘Born in the valley’ - and was created by local farmers in the Colombian Caribbean, on their travels through coastal villages in order to entertain themselves and share stories and news between the ‘pueblos’.

For the first part of our evening we will be showcasing the film by Ciro Guerra, ‘Los Viajes Del Viento’ which follows the journey of a boy and an accordion player across an enchanting backdrop of Colombia’s coastal villages, unravelling the spirits of Vallenato and Colombian folklore. This will be accompanied by a veggie ode to el sancocho, a favourite Colombian national dish.

Following the film screening there will be a talk and Q&A with Nando Arias, an accomplished Colombian accordionist and multi instrumentalist whose musical identity lies firmly rooted in the genre. As if that wasn’t enough we will be blessed with a performance of Vallenato classics played live by Nando himself and a very special guest.

Lastly, wrapping up the evening we will shimmy you onto the dance floor for a DJ set by Candelita residents and founders: Bushbby, Desta and Alma De La Selva.

Come early if you would like to jump on the open decks!

CANDELITA - en conversación sobre el Vallenato

El 17 de Noviembre vamos a traerte la primera instalación de Candelita ‘en conversación’, este sera una exploración de uno de los géneros y estilos de música más popular y importantes en Colombia; el Vallenato.

Fundada en los principios del siglo XIX, la palabra significa ‘nacido en el valle’ y fue creada por campesinos en el caribe Colombiano en sus viajes por los pueblos de la costa como una forma de entretenerse y compartir cuentos y noticias.

Para la primera parte de la noche, vamos a estar mostrando la película de Ciro Guerra, ‘Los Viajes Del Viento’ que sigue un joven y un acordeonista por paisajes encantadores de la costa caribeña de Colombia, desenredando los espíritus del Vallenato y el folklore Colombiano. Esto sera acompañado con una version vegana del sancocho, un plato típico de Colombia.

Después de la película, habrá una charla y Q&A con Nando Arias, un acordeonista y Multi-instrumentista de quién su identidad musical esta firmemente arraigado en el genero. Y si todo esto no fuera suficiente, Nando nos va a dar un set de temas clásicas del Vallenato con un invitado especial.

Finalmente, cerrando este evento vamos a tenerte moviendo a la pista con DJ sets de los residentes de Candelita: Bushbby, Desta y Alma.

Vente temprano si quieres participar en los open decks!
