Program: Human Rights & The Political Power Of Music In Colombia

We got tipped off about this interesting program happening in Colombia in January 2020. For anyone interested in Colombian music history, human rights and the power music can have in affecting social change should definitely check this out.

​”By the end of the program, delegates will: 

​1) Understand music as a form of artistic expression.
2) Formulate concepts of group and individual rights in Colombia and how these rights are controlled by the state.
3) Identify genres of contemporary music in Colombia, specifically Champeta, Hip-hop, Vallenato, and Cumbia.
4) Understand how political and social forces have shaped the musical landscapes in Colombia.”
