All the joy and color of the Barranquilla Carnival is present in the official video of Queen Melissa Cure Villa’s song ‘I like your tumbao’.
The single is authored by the singer and composer Gusi, who performs the song in collaboration with the singer Maía and the singer and comedian Juanda Caribe.
The song was inspired by the queen’s Marketing strategy ‘#ConTodoElTumbao’, which is an invitation that Meme, as Melissa Cure is known, has been sharing so that together they can discover the tumbao that Barranquilla and carnival fans have.
“We have tumbao to dance, to play, to knit, to cook, to live, to do what makes us happy. Each one has their tumbao and this is how my song sounds, I know they are going to sing and dance to it,” notes the queen.
The Culture Factory, the new stage of culture in the Caribbean region, was transformed into the kingdom of the sovereign: a large runway where more than 200 Carnival artists paraded, alluding to a Great Parade of Tradition with the tumbao of cumbiamberos, doodles, congos, black puloys, coyongos, paloteos, Indian women with braids, they are in black, marimondas, monocucos and even harlequin devils.
The official video is now available on YouTube and the song on all digital platforms.
