“El alma de los pueblos”

“El alma de los pueblos”

Carlos Cruz (Colombia)

The Departmental Program of Student Music Bands of Caldas is a cultural, social and educational phenomenon.

El alma de los pueblos tells from different voices, the life experiences of those who have been part of the program throughout its history, from its beginnings to the present.

Stories that tell how art through music prevailed over conditions of violence, inequality, abandonment and lack of opportunities, and how these groups have been one of the instruments to overcome these difficulties.

It is a journey through the past and present and a look into the future of the Departmental Band Program of Caldas, with all its challenges and possibilities.
