Totó La Momposina made a rare live appearance in London on Friday night as part of La Linea Festival at Cadogan Hall.
From the start Totó had us, and the whole of the sold out audience, in the palm of her hand with a masterful performance full of passion and effortless control. For all the cultural and historical importance that Totó’s music clearly has this was an audience fully embracing and engaging in the moment.
Playing music from across her career, including music from La Candela Viva and Tambolero, seeing Totó La Momposina live is a euphoric celebration of the music of Colombia.
More live shows in Europe throughout May and June.
