Disney has announced a brand new series is currently being filmed in Colombia (Bogotá and Santa Marta) called “Champeta, el ritmo de la Tierra” (Champeta, The Rhythm Of The Earth) for Disney+.

This new Disney+ Original follows Duma (de la Hoz) and Fatimah (Trujillo), a boy and a girl who come from very different universes and fall in love dancing champeta in the streets of Barrio de la Bahía, in the Colombian Caribbean. Elías (Moreno) also lives there, an enigmatic old man who knows the powers of this indigenous rhythm. When the feet of Duma and Fatimah caress the ground to the rhythm of the champeta, they awaken the ancient power of the Earth, which has chosen them to protect it from the destructive forces of a powerful corporation. Little by little, Duma and Fatimah will develop their supernatural powers together and, accompanied by their friends, will make use of them to save the Bahia Quarter, the city and the Earth as a whole. 

The series features original music composed and produced by Colombian artist Mr. Black El Presidente , who also plays “Chamo” in the series.


Starring in this new Disney+ series are Angely Gaviria (“Luz”), Johann Vera (“Michael”), Sergio Herrera (“Alexander”), Allison Vega (“Majo”), Danharry Colorado (“Ronnie”), Blanca Palacio (“Vera”), Julián Calderón (“Pipa”), Jean Carlo Posada (“Don Orlando”), Sebastián González (“Emiliano”), Rafael Novoa (“Eduardo”), James Vargas (“El anciano”), Cristian Vargas (“Pedro”), Ricardo Vélez (“César Osorio”) an Carolina Angarita (“Verónica”).

The series has been written by Andrés Gelós, Pablo Junovich and Santiago Guerty.


“Champeta, the rhythm of the Earth” will consist of ten 40-minute episodes and will arrive on Disney+ in Latin America in 2022.  No international release date has yet been confirmed.
