Film-makers Santiago Posada and Simon Meija arrived at Palenque, near the Caribbean coast of Colombia to record the music of the area and to make a documentary film about the people of Palenque.

Palenque is a central location for Afro-Colombian culture, the location of the first free slave (or Maroon) community in the Americas. With its own unique style of music and language, heavily influenced by its African heritage, it holds a unique position and is today proclaimed by UNESCO as a Masterpiece of the Oral and Intangible Heritage of Humanity.

The film-makers built a studio in the town in order to record the highly percussive roots music that mixes African and Latin in equal flavours.

Once back home they enlisted a select number of like-minded electronic, house and dubstup artists to produce a second disc of remixes - including Osunlade, Mattias Aguayo, Kromestar and others to interpret the original works.

This set includes the DVD, a CD of original music and a CD of remixes. It comes in a stunning three case box set with sleeve notes about the project and the history of Palenque and exclusive photography.
