Sonidoselva invites you to La Sierra. Experience the synergy of ancient wisdom, indigenous traditions, and modern culture brought into perfect harmony. Sonidoselva is committed to building our community based on a synthesis of art, music, and spirituality.
We are a cultural center on the Caribbean coast of Colombia that is working to preserve and share the vibrance of this unique region. It is located in a magical little town, called Minca, in the foothills of the world's only tropical coastal snow capped peak, La Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta. The name Sonidoselva, Spanish for “sound of the jungle," speaks to the rich natural diversity of the region's ecosystems and its connection to the music and culture.
Our Summer Event Series will feature: concerts, art shows, music production workshops, cooking classes, free children’s programs, yoga retreats, and other activities that feed the mind, body, and soul.
Expansion is underway! The recording studio is being renovated and we are adding a large live room so we are able to work comfortably with large groups of folkloric musicians. Outside, on the grounds, we are building traditional clay oven kitchens for our events. In addition, we are implementing a multi-channel immersive sound system. In the near future the goal is to build classrooms, a wellness and healing space, an art gallery, and accommodations for guests.
Sonidoselva is humbled to have the blessings of the Mamos, the spiritual leaders of the indigenous peoples of La Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta. The Mamos are an integral part of the development of the center and we share the view that mutual respect and cultural exchange promote a thriving community.
We would be grateful for your support in order to enable the expansion of these programs and our facilities. Sonidoselva believes in solidarity and interdependence and we are looking forward to creating a thriving cultural center with you!
