This was our first encounter. The day we met, on the balcony of Merche’s home, we shared some music. Yorman did some drumming and Rennea did some singing. After this exchange, we chose to work together and continue learning from each other.
Birongo is a rural village in Barlovento were you may find many treasures:
1) a centenary cacao plantation, a chocolate factory, and their fabulous care-takers,
2) Las Estrellas de Birongo, a group that keeps alive traditions of music and dance
3) delicious Dulces de Rosa, traditional regional sweets,
4) the cave Tapa de Cambural o Alfredo Jahn
just to name a few
It is a place worth a visit.
