Totó La Momposina came to Real World Studios in August 1991 to begin recording what would prove to be her most important album, now re-released on Real World Records as ‘Tambolero’. Central to the album is this track ‘El Pescador’. The track has been restored and remixed and features as a track on the 2015 album ‘Tambolero’.
Singer, dancer and teacher, Totó La Momposina's entire life has been dedicated to representing the music of Colombia’s Caribbean coastline, where African, Indigenous Indian and Spanish cultures mingle to create a unique musical tradition. ‘Tambolero’, originally released in 1993 as ‘La Candela Viva’, has been re-created and re-imagined for 2015 as part of Real World Records’ Gold series.
A tribute to the fisherman working the coasts and rivers of Colombia. A sense of respect, affection and appreciation is revealed in the words of the hard, yet humble, task of the fisherman, in touch with nature. El Pescador was composed by José Barros, from El Banco, celebrated creator of many well-loved Colombian songs.
