Bagpipes, clarinets and drums merge with guitars, accordions and other instruments to create lively music in Sincelejo and throughout the department of Sucre. This city, founded on October 4, 1535, reflects in its sounds the rich mixture that occurred between Europe, Africa and America in the Colombian Caribbean. Sincelejo, whose average temperature is 27 ºC, is a starting point to visit mountains, savannas, gulfs and marshes.
