Homage to Rafael Godoy

Rafael Godoy (1907 – 1973) was a pre-eminent Colombian composer who has inspired generations of musicians through his soulful lyrics and melody. No more so then his grandson Rafa Godoy who has inherited the same resonant voice and rhythmic spirit. In Homage to Rafael Godoy, Rafa has infused the lilting Colombian Bambuco rhythms of songs such as Soy Colombiano and Cafetal with the unique tones of the accordion, tiple and bouzouki to blend tradition with modernity and ensure the enduring spirit of his Grandfather’s musical legacy. A great fusion of Afro-Cuban, Venezuelan and Colombian rhythms.
