Bolero Bogotano

In Bogota, in a block located in between the 55th street and the Caracas avenue time has stopped around the time of Mexican westerns.
As if coming out of some 60’s films, celebrating six shooters and highwaymen, the Mariachis groups are a true part of folk culture in Colombia. Musicians offer their services for 30$ an hour and are sought for to celebrate important events or just for parties.
The Mariachis are very appreciated by the drug dealers who pay them to write songs about their adventures, the ’’narco corridos’’.
