Final Chapter from Discos Pacífico’s Insider Guide to Petronio, Colombia’s Renowned Afro-Latin Festival05 December, 2022
We have arrived at the final chapter of Discos Pacífico’s four-part mini-doc series from offering an insider’s look at the Petronio Alvarez Festival. As the biggest Afro-culture festival in all of Latin America, it’s a tough task to showcase the energy and magic of Petronio, especially if you’ve never been, but these four episodes presented by Verito Asprilla have achieved just that.
The final part takes us through the last day of the four-day festival, revealing the indescribable energy that Petronio manifests, even in the rain! With a special feature from Agrupacion Chango, taking us backstage and detailing the important work they do with youth in Tumaco, this episode is not to be missed.
As if a special look into the main event of the festival wasn’t enough, Discos Pacífico provides us with an even more local scoop by taking us to the arullo of Nidia Gongora, the best place to be to see the music in its traditional sense and, of course, to experience the best Petronio after-party.
