Colombia Program Craftspeople

Dozens of Colombian craftspeople participated in the 2011 Festival. They were carpenters, carvers, ceramicists, cooks, hairstylists, hat makers, flower and coffee growers, instrument makers, silver and gold smiths, and weavers. This video montage of these craftspeople is set to music by Cabrestero, a joropo music and dance group from the Southeastern Plains region.

Video shot and edited by Charles Weber.

    beautiful images, but it’s a shame that it is not possible to enjoy the background music, because it seems that there is another rithm playing at the same time. It would be very nice that this could be arranged. thank you
