We will explore the cultural heritage of afrodescendants living on the Colombian Caribbean coasts, trade in sugar cane and the fusion of European music with African drums.
Salsa is the product of various musical gendres including the Cuban son montuno, guaracha, cha cha chá, mambo, and to a certain extent bolero, and the Puerto Rican bomba and plena. American jazz, which was also developed in United States, has had a significant influence on salsa arrangers, piano guajeos, and instrumental soloists. The music eventually spread throughout Colombia and the rest of the Americas.

The majority of the world's rum production occurs in the Caribbean and Latin America. In two dark cellars that go unnoticed in Barranquilla and Cartagena, rest for 20 years a golden liquid. It has surprised the most demanding rum tasters in the world
