LA SINFÓNICA DE LOS ANDES
(LOS ANDES SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA)
OmeU (Spanish with English Subtitles)
The North of Cauca is the region of Colombia most affected by the internal armed conflict since 1940. There is an orchestra of ancestral music composed of indigenous youth of the Nasa ethnic group who, with their instruments, their voice and their poetry are reminiscent of Maryi Vanessa Coicue, Sebastian Ul and Ingrid Guejia, three of the hundreds of indigenous children who have died because of this eternal and useless war between leftist guerrillas, armed groups of the extreme right, drug traffickers and the Colombian State.
