I’m a member of a Colombian drumming group called Tambores Lejanos (meaning ‘distant drums’ in Spanish). We play music from Colombia’s Caribbean coast. The group was set up last September by my friend and ethnomusicologist Ian Middleton, who spent two years living in Colombia.
The programme was transmitted on August 1st (Yorkshire Day) on Radio Leeds, Sheffield, York and Humberside, and also on BBC1 as part of Look North. You can watch the full version online and in HD on Youtube!
Watch A Symphony for Yorkshire! (We’re about 1’05” in!)
