Carnival of Barranquilla celebrations among Colombian diaspora

Patricio López Beckett / #PatrimonioGlobal

Some celebrations of the Carnival of Barranquilla (inscribed on the Representative List) developed by the Colombian diaspora in different cities where they reside won’t be held.

In Toronto, for example, the community had announced the organization of a “Carnaval de Barranquilla in Toronto” for the boreal summer, would be cancelled.

In a greater sense, the representatives of the community of the inscribed element in Barranquilla are trying to prepare for a festival that may not come.

Performers of the carnival music expressions are looking for alternative sources of income.
