Simón Mejía, of the Latin music sensation Bomba Estéreo, journeys from Afro-Colombian communities on the Pacific Coast to Indigenous tribes in the mountains to learn about these communities who have united to protect the vast Colombian rainforests connecting them. Along the way, Simón records the sounds of the forests and communities, and expresses the power of the experience in the way he knows best—through music.
