Quibdó, memories in the present
Quibdó is a place that exacerbates the senses from an ethnic and cultural perspective; it is a land full of riches that in the diversity of its population reflects a socio-cultural amalgam in its gastronomy, music, dance, and other Afro, indigenous and mestizo manifestations. Quibdó is a place of brave people who, despite their needs and conflicts, are characterized by being a vital part of a territory rich in creative and cultural production. In this way, the link with Quibdó continues to be a priority for QAFF, for the actions that are carried out in coordination with the communities of the Bahía Solano, El Porvenir, Malecón and El Bosque neighborhoods. Working hand in hand with the Mayor's Office of Quibdó and the Government of Chocó, as these links are important to preserve the identity of the festival as a bridge between this city of Colombia and Africa.
