Totó la Momposina

Totó la Momposina’s entire life has been dedicated to representing the music of Colombia’s Caribbean coastline. As a child, the conflict of La Violencia forced her family to flee their home and move to Bogotá. Totó emerged as a promising singer in the 1950s and formed her own band in the 1960s. She began touring internationally a decade later and cemented her global fame in the 1990s with a WOMAD tour across three continents, the release of La Candela Viva, and the many international shows and recordings that followed.

Totó continues to work tirelessly to promote the music of her homeland, driven by passion and the simple joy of performance. She has received the Latin Recording Academy’s Lifetime Achievement Award and the WOMEX Lifetime Achievement Award. Her latest album, Tambolero, is a re-creation of La Candela Viva.
