Friday 30 June | 14:00 - 19:00 I Vinyl set | Beach Stage

Paola Valdivieso was born in Bogotá in Colombia. After studying literature, she became involved in the cultural scene of her country as an event producer, DJ and curator. Music collector since her childhood, she is interested in the history and genesis of each piece that takes place in her rich collection of Afro-tropical music. From classic salsa to merengue, cumbia to vallenato, Loa Malbec will reveal the best kept secrets of his collection throughout the weekend.

Discos Fuentes is a record label based in Medellin, Colombia, South America. Founded in 1934 in Cartagena by Antonio Fuentes Estrada, Discos Fuentes is the country’s first label. The label has contributed to making known to Colombia afro-rhythmic genres such as cumbia, fandango, merengue, porro and salsa or to the emergence of artists such as Guillermo Buitrago, Rafael Escalona and Julio César Bovea.

Discos Fuentes has often been described as the Colombian version of «Motown», peaking in the 1960s and early 1970s.
