White Man Sings Vallenato

On Wednesday we received the three Norwegian winners of a writing contest by the Norwegian Foundation Golden Colombia and their webpage Cocaine.no.

We surprised the three winners at the airport with an overloaded Chiva (party bus) filled with crazy kids from the Barrio Los Communeros. It was a wild ride and a shocking welcome to the Caribbean.

In the town centre of Cartagena the leader of Golden Colombia meets a Vallenato band that he knows. They strike up quite a performance!

Golden Colombia works to make known the tragic effects of cocaine use in the west has on the people of Colombia. Also the foundation try to show the other side of Colombia that is not violence and destruction, but hardworking decent and honest people with a unique culture not known to most of the world.
