Considered by UNESCO an Intangible Cultural Heritage in Need of Urgent Safeguarding, Vallenato is a popular folk music genre that originated in Colombia. Poetic lyrics, rhythmic guitar playing, catchy accordion melodies, and energetic rhythms are the hallmarks of Vallenato music. In a typical Vallenato ensemble, you'll hear four main instruments: the accordion, caja, guacharaca, and bass. With such popularity in the entire country, the genre has become an emblematic musical style not only for its uniqueness but also for the common themes it portrays in most songs.
Over the years, the music evolved, drawing inspiration from a wide variety of musical forms while maintaining its traditional core. Several artists in the genre made waves not only in the Colombian music scene but also in the entire Latin community. After all, the songs in the genre contain universal themes, like love, everyday life, the environment, and cultural customs. As a result, many festivals and competitions were dedicated to Vallenato. Events like the Festival de la Leyenda Vallenata in Valledupar, Colombia, honor the genre.
In addition, many artists keep the Vallenato music alive by fusing it with contemporary sounds. The likes of Silvestre Dangond, Binomio de Oro de América, Diomedes Díaz, Los Diablitos, Jorge Celedón, and Felipe Peláez, among many others, are some of the biggest names in the genre.
