MUSIC OF THE RIVER
LA MÚSICA DEL RÍO

Aurelio Fernández, a self-taught musician who creates his melodies imitating the singing of birds, Julio Erazo, a popular composer who uses music to overcome the lack of memory, and the cumbión, a celebration that takes place every year in the town of Guamal, Magdalena, all converge at the Magdalena River. The same river that has given rise to the richest and perhaps most representative musical tradition in the country.
