Currambera's video, in which the artist's father and several Barranquilla Carnival queens participated, "tells the life story of world star Shakira through different scenes, linking it with her musical career and at the same time, tells us of the characteristics of the Barranquilla woman”, said the Sony production company in a statement.
"She is the result of a culture, or better, the meeting of many cultures in this magical place called Curramba," Carlos Vives said in a reference to Barranquilla, according to the statement.
The song is also a tribute to all the women of Barranquilla, the curramberas; to her dances, her movements and her hips: Currambera , that lights up your skirt. Cumbiamba that you move your hip”, repeats the Colombian singer.
