“What we wanted to express with the cover was the importance of weave as a social element, not only to create music in this case, but to understand the importance of teamwork, of the sum of hands working for something.
It is also a symbolization of the vine, which for centuries has been used to tie, to join and well, we know how strong that tie can be.
And at the center of everything we have the “Batea”, Because of all the uses and applications it becomes a very important of element in the Pacific culture.
Everything revolves around it and as the wise Julian Beltrán says: the world fits in a pan. "
“El mundo cabe en una batea”
Discos Pacífico presents 'Batea', the debut album by Bejuco, a bet that leads us to explore Colombia’s Pacific coast from another place.
Immersing ourselves in the origins of Afrobeat, we created the 'bambuco beat': a whole journey through the territory that shows us new sound possibilities, new readings, new voices, new rhythms.
This album, made up of 12 songs, is a chant to life, inspired by the rise and fall of the tide; in the daily life of the neighborhood and the streets of Tumaco.
