You will think that because we passed December 31th the party is over. No way! We still have a lot to celebrate.

In January and February we have three major festivals we love!

First, from December 28 to January 7, the Blacks and Whites’ Carnival “Carnaval de Negros y Blancos” in Pasto, proclaimed by UNESCO as one of the Masterpieces of the Oral and Intangible Heritage of Humanity.

Then, from January 4 to 11, The Manizales Fair, renowned nationally and internationally for its bullfighting season.

And last, but not least, from February 9 to 12, The Barranquilla’s Carnival, one of the biggest carnivals in the world that paralyzes an entire city.

As you can see, the party has just started. Take a look at our posts about these festivals and keep the party going!

We asked our students what was the best song to party to and what had they learned about Colombia or the Spanish language, and because we recently talked about Colombian music style “Vallenatos” and its modern fusion with pop and rock, we narrowed the list to 5 Vallenatos.

1. Fonseca – Eres Mi Sueño

2. Diego, Ay Diosito

3. Carlos Vives, Volví a nacer

4. Fonseca, Te mando Flores

5. Fanny Lu – No Te Pido Flores
