Tourism is one of the main economic activities of the country, with a large number
of visitors and a generation of economical many millions of dollars in the year,
which makes it one of the most important source of foreign currency for the
country. Among the main tourist destinations highlights the bolivar department with
the city of Cartagena as the main attraction of the department. It is estimated that
more than two million d people arrive to Cartagena each year.
This influx of tourists has resulted in a significant development for tourist services

the increase of the average stay of the visitor.
Within these new products is the cultural route of the champeta music one of the
cultural representations of this city.
What is champeta music?
It is a contemporary rhythm that was born 26 years ago in the city of Cartagena de
Indias (Colombia) with a great influence of Palenque San Basilio and that through
their encounters with music of the Caribbean of the 80s which were carried out in
Cartagena was extended to the national level .Champeta was born as an
adaptation of African rhythms (soukous, highlife, bquanga, juju) with vibration west-
indian (rap, Haitian compas, zouk, calypso and soca) and influences of the music
descendant of indigenous and afro-colombian (bullarengue, mapale, zambapalo
and chalupa). This fusion of rhythms you configured a new urban music culture in
the Caribbean context, which is consolidated in the popular neighborhoods of
Cartagena in the mid-eighties.
Then in the years 90 suffered a series of changes both in its contents, as in its
music, accompanied by digital phenomena, plates (interventions arrhythmic) and
being both beloved as rejected by the elite sectors of the country. Champeta is
disseminated through the powerful sound equipment called peaks (pick-up) that
can be heard in the stalls or even though by now be have more welcomed in
Colombia is listening for radio stations.
It is characterized by the rhythmic base takes precedence over the melodic and
harmonic lines, making it a musical expression in dance that is dominated by a
force and a plasticity overflowing.
