Latest news »Totó la Momposina releases 'Tu Tambor'
'Tu Tambor' is a previously unreleased track by Colombian singer, dancer and teacher Totó La Momposina, whose entire life has been dedicated to representing the music of Colombia's Caribbean coastline.
Originally recorded during the sessions for La Candela Viva album but only rediscovered during the work conducted for the Tambolero album, released in 2015.
The track celebrates Totó's long-time musical collaborator and master tambor player Paulino 'Batata' Salgado.
"It's good to hear my long-time friend and fellow traveller Batata again. He brought so much to my music; I have never come across a drummer since who plays the tambor like he did." ~ Totó
To accompany the track, we have released a new video from the Real World archive which captures the song as it was tracked during the legendary Wood Room sessions at Real World Studios in 1992.
Totó finishes her long run of live shows this weekend in the USA.
