The sound of a tradition of teaching.
In the last years of physical life of Salvador Montiel, I was able to listen to him tell me many of his experiences.
Salvador, one of the most important exponents
of the Wayuu community in Venezuela,
gave his entire life to the Wayuu,
spreading their traditions and sounds.
Washe had the opportunity to pay a deserved
living tribute by the grouping Etnoe3
and supported by the British Council, Maczul
and Black Point animations with Max Hattler
in the city of Maracaibo.
After several months,
Salvador left to Jepirá
Where he rests. A month later, his family invited us to participate
in a Wayuu post mortem ritual, where we shared with them
from "Yonna" dance traditions and clothing to food:
food is an important part in any ritual.
That was a day of experiences in the lands
of Salvador Montiel and the Wayuu.
