IIn my most recent adventure for Colombia. I was in the Island of Barú. Conducting interviews for a foundation that supports the music school in the “Casa Amarilla”. This project is quite important for the community; Since in this population there are few extra curricular activities that young people can do
I share the video:
The abandonment of the Colombian State
Where is the Colombian state in island of Barú? They have no drinking water, the health center was half-way and the access road to reach Baru is an odyssey by the sector of the Playeta. The contradiction of all this is that this town is surrounded by the best hotels in Colombia and some of the most expensive land where only millionaires can afford these luxuries. The sad thing is that the days pass and no one takes care of this situation.
The joy of island of Barú is his people
The smile of the Baruleros children is impressive there is nothing to placate them. They are the engine of this island. In every talk they had, they were always going to be present because they are very important in the community. Their way of expressing themselves with either the dance or the music makes them see with an innate talent that is typical of the Caribbean coast. I do not know why the Ministry of Culture of Colombia has not wanted to visit these corners of Colombia. So it is they who have the control of happiness in Barú. Apart chapter for the school of Fé y Alegría that carries an excellent work with the highest standards.
The project of the facades of houses
I was completely fascinated with the history that this population has but even more impressed with its historical facades. The only thing to regret is the abandonment that many of them have. Also the new generations are making modern constructions and this causes that many of them begin to lose. That is how I began to collect photographs of the facades that are very colorful and old hopefully later this heritage does not end in the ruins.
To each and every one of the Baruleros I can only say that they have a beautiful town with people who are worthy to dream big and never give up. The talents themselves will make this population worth admiring.
This community is very loud and very few are able to do much with so little. All my respect and admiration for the talents that this town has filled with many smiles that want to know the world. Thanks to my Aunt Rossana who always takes me to know places that very few dare to visit.
