CHARLES KING

In the 1990s, when Cartagena seemed to be known in the country for the National Beauty Peagent and the hotel industry, Carlos Reyes and his group Anne Swing gave form to a rhythm that would claim social consciousness and visibility of the urban reality of the Cartagenan people : the champeta. Carlos Reyes would become Charles King and the African vein of champeta that had been born in Palenque and had exploded in Cartagena found the right guy, a Venezuelan of long dreadlocks inspired by the picós and the shadows of an enigmatic city. “El abogado corrupto”, “Bicarbonato” and “El martillo” are the hymns that have given him the title of “Cronista de la champeta”. His second concert at the FEP will reunite us with a rhythm that has defined the new Colombian folklore and that has become fundamental within the rhythms that this country has given to the most danceable native genres.
