El Pescador (live at Real World Studios)

Totó la Momposina

Totó La Momposina came to Real World Studios in August 1991 to begin recording what would prove to be her most important album, La Candela Viva. In this never before seen footage from the original recording session, Totó delivers an outstanding live performance of ‘El Pescador’, surrounded by friends and guests. The soundtrack has been restored and remixed and features as a track on the 2015 album Tambolero.
