about

'Aronde' was recorded live at WOMAD Festival in Charlton Park, Wiltshire, UK in July 2015.

Totó would like to offer this track to anyone who is interested and able to contribute to her fundraising campaign to raise money for Colombian musicians who are struggling with the challenges to live music touring that has been brought about by the COVID-19 pandemic.

You can choose your own amount which you would like to contribute to the fundraising campaign, and will automatically receive a digital download of this fantastic live recording performed by Totó and her band.


A message from Totó:

After more than 60 years performing the ancestral music of my country Colombia, I never imagined I would be living a reality like this caused by the coronavirus, which has affected the entire world and even reminds me of the times of war in Colombia when I was a child.

Just before entering the quarantine period I was taking a break to recharge my batteries and resume our work, which is what most inspires me and gives me happiness. We were getting ready to leave for Chile to perform some concerts that of course were cancelled.

We are all independent workers, totally dependent on the income from concerts, which are organized between six months and a year in advance.

The panorama is very uncertain, so I am appealing to the good hearts of all our fans and asking for your help to collect some funds in order to support the members of my group, who have been without work for more than five months — in Colombia there is no support for us artists.

These funds will be divided among them. In this way they will have something to support their families, pay electricity, rent, etc and relieve a little of the stress that has been generated in this period of uncertainty. Hopefully soon we can be with you again, to work once more in what know best, the music.

If you are able please help by donating what you can. Also, please share it with anyone you think may be will be able to help.

With all my heart I thank you. The people united will never be defeated.

With love Totó
