Campfire Club Nest Collective Presents Unamplified

The sweetly exuberant chanting of 5 female voices, the marimba, the drums & guasa percussion surrounding Nidia Góngora, Canalón embody the rich musical mix of African and Latin- American traditions unique to Colombia’s Pacific coast.

Canalon’s music is all about ancestral sounds from the Afro-Colombian Pacific Coast which recreates all the power and rhythm of the chonta marimba, with ist guasa and bombo. Their melodies and lyrics talk about the jungle, the river, the miners and all things that happen in the town they come from. Hailing from the town of Timbiquí in Cauca state on the Pacific Coast, the female singers are led by Nidia Góngora and are supported by a band using a range of traditional percussive instruments such as the tambora drum and the xylophone-style marimba.

Their interest in traditional music has lead Nidia Góngora to work with Quantic for the past five years in collaborations and tours across Europe. In 2012, Sofrito Records included in its compilation record LA ZORRA Y EL PEROL, one of Canalón’s classic songs. In the same year, the group made a cover of La Jeanne from renowed and beloved French artist George Brassens. Their last Album ARRULLANDO is out now and it gathers the most traditional rhythms from the pacific coast.

Woodberry Wetlands

Woodberry Wetlands is a haven for wildlife and people in Hackney: 11 hectares of reed-fringed ponds and dykes.The reserve is five minutes’ walk from the densely built up areas of Manor House, Stoke Newington and Woodberry Down. The contrast between the surrounding tower blocks and the wild wetland habitat with old oak trees is almost unbelievable.
