Shotguns and Accordions: Music of the Marijuana Growing Regions of Columbia [DVD] [1983]

This video examines the popular music of northern Columbia, a style known as vallenato, a combination of Indian flute music and African-tinged cumbia rhythms. What results is a bluesy fusion of indigenous forms and modern rock & roll, perfect music for the all-night dances these sounds often grace. More than a simple music video, this is an examination as well of the cultural factors that produced these melodies.
