National Porro Festival

The National Porro Festival, which takes place in San Pelayo (a municipality bordering southern Lorica), brings together the most important porro bands. The event begins with a traditional “call at dawn”, in which all contestants (about 400 musicians) gather in a single performance. The drum is the main instrument of this Caribbean rhythm.
