Mike Who South America Podcast Vol 3: Colombia

Earlier in the year I had the chance to venture to the amazing country that is Colombia. Due to our shoestring budget we decided to roll through both Cali and Medellín kind of briefly in the pursuit of both sun and coastal vibes in the north. So after  a few overnight buses, which by the way were totally safe and free from any Guerrilla hijackings, we eventually made it to our final destination and a place i am 100% coming back to, the Caribbean Coastline in particular Santa Marta and Cartagena de Indias.  Amazing cities, warm and friendly locals, white sand beaches, palm tress, turquoise water and plenty of fresh fish and cheap beers made bunking down in shitty hostels and enjoying a balanced diet of tuna and rice for 4 weeks all worthwhile.

The podcast  is rooted  in the tropical ritmos originating from the Carribbean coastline of Colombia. Some classic  Cumbia, Palenque, and Salsa, with bits of hip hop and digital cumbia from some newer groups making moves throughout Colombia and Latin America . This is by no means anything in depth, just some tunes of Colombian origin i stumbled across during my travels and thought fitting to share. Saludos, Mike Who
