Experience Afro-Columbian drumming and gaita. Born in Cartagena, Colombia, a city rich with African, Spanish, and aboriginal cultures and traditions, Eduardo Martínez Arvilla’s studies in Afro-Colombian drumming began as a young boy, immersed in his city’s oral history and music. Eduardo learned drumming and gaita from some of the most respected and famous masters of the tradition, including Paulino Salgado (aka, Batata III) and Encarnación Tovar (aka, El Diablo), and has toured with many groups including Totó La Momposina, Petrona Martínez and Chelito de Castro.
