Explore Cartagena’s culture it's cool

Explore Cartagena’s culture it's cool Highbrow culture and lowbrow fun. Once comfortable with the safety of the place, I ventured out to explore Cartagena’s culture. I was worried the city might have transformed into an antiseptic tourist bubble, far removed from its regional or national soul.





My visit coincided with the third annual Cartagena International Music Festival, a collection of local and foreign performers including the London Chamber Orchestra, and the Colombian folk ensemble Sinsonte.

Performances were sold out months ahead of time, with the elite of Colombia and international visitors gathering for gala events in refurbished theaters, repurposed chapels and city plazas. Outreach concerts took Mozart to the poor of the barrios, while master classes provided a forum for fellowship through music.
