Music in the Street

A family affair: This family from Cordoba are a common site in central Bogotá playing lively vallenato music. Their name: 'Alegria Vallenata.'

One of the nicest things about living in central Bogotá is all the free street street entertainment - free, except that if you stick arouind you'll be expected to toss a few coins or a bill into the hat.

Watch Alegria Vallenata perform here and here.

A passerby gets down to Alegria Vallenata's music!

A little ways up Seventh Ave, these guys were crooning songs from yesteryear - but seemed more focused on selling CDs than entertaining.

This group, called JFR, plays rock, romantic, reggae and Native American music. I've also seen them dressed in Native American dress.

Watch JFR perform here.

This music/dance school was doing a lively, energetic performance in La Plaza del Rosario.

And these guys, strumming folk music, chose a colorful backdrop on Jimenez Ave.

Muchos dias salen bandas, pero no es muy predicible. Con más frecuencia los dias fines de semana y festivos.
