- New Mexico's own Women's Voice and Drum Ensemble draws its inspiration from the rhythms of Afro-Colombia’s Atlantic and Pacific coasts, but does not stop there: woven into the mix are Caribbean reggaton, contemporary beat-boxing, African-American traditional, Mexican cumbia, and their own cumbia-inspired original compositions. Their love for the rhythm-inspired music of Colombia’s coastal people brought this vision of diversely talented women together to offer a unique and exciting tapestry of many voices and many drums.
