The Otún River, located in Colombia’s Coffee Cultural Landscape (a World Heritage Site), was renamed the stone sculpting river by the composer Luis Carlos González in a line of the bambuco titled Pereira. From the line, a new bambuco was composed to vindicate the autonomy of the river as a creative subject and draw attention to its proximity to the center of Pereira. The work is thus presented as a creative result of the river, highlighting its value as heritage, the conditions of the river and its neighbors, and questioning the responsibility of public and private entities and citizens.
