was born in Tumaco, which is on the Pacific coast in Colombia. My family and I moved to Cali when I was 14 years old. Cali is the most diverse city in Colombia, and has the largest black population. There I encountered the Pacific Music scene and during my postgraduate education I began to research and write about this scene as a catalyst for economic and social development.
