Carnival of Barranquilla - Carnival of the New World


Language: English

Every year during the four days before Lent, the Carnival de Barranquilla offers a repertory of dances and musical expressions originating from different Colombian sub-cultures. Because of its geographical location situated on the Caribbean coast and the commercial development during the colonial period, the city of Barranquilla became one of the country's busiest trading centres and a place where European, African, and indigenous peoples and cultures converged.
