Delightful Music: Grupo Rebolu is an Afro-Colombian musical ensemble comprised of some of the finest Colombian musicians in the United States. The group was created from the desire of Ronald Polo, (vocalist/composer/gaitero), Morris Canate, (master folkloric percussionist), and later on Johanna Castaneda (Vocalist/musician) to promote the rich musical traditions of their ancestors; the afro-descendents of Colombia's Caribbean coast.
Delightful Cinema: "Birds of Passage" - During the marijuana bonanza, a violent decade that saw the origins of drug trafficking in Colombia, Rapayet and his indigenous family get involved in a war to control the business that ends up destroying their lives and their culture.
Directors: Cristina Gallego, Ciro Guerra
