Ondatropica: A Sound Journey from Colombia to London
Conceived by Colombian musician Mario Galeano and English producer Will 'Quantic' Holland, Ondatrópica brings together an all-star cast representing both the classic and modern styles of Colombian music. Find out about the places and people behind the cross-cultural musical collaboration in this 12 part series of short films.
In episode five we meet Michi Sarmiento, composer and arranger of many of the biggest hits in tropical music, and learn about his inspirations and experience as the ‘Godfather’ of Ondatropica.
