Feel the rhythm In Colombia, we have rhythm in our blood.Here we walk as if we're dancing and we talk with a sing-song tone.Music in this country is not heard, it is lived.We have an "I don't know what" that spreads and makes people move.The schedule of our festivals and carnivals is endless.In each of our regions, there is a different rhythm (which is why we are known as the country of 1000 rhythms).Our artists are recognized throughout the world.And we even have cultural heritage of humanity rhythms and songs.IF THERE IS A COUNTRY THAT VIBRATES WITH THE EMOTIONS THAT ITS MUSIC PRODUCES, IT IS COLOMBIA.
