Homage to “la décima”

 Teatro Adolfo Mejía

We bid farewell to the festival with an event that celebrates the rich Colombian musical tradition, with those who know and play its melodies. Spanish poets invented ten-verse poems in the 16th century and, soon after, la décima arrived in America. It disappeared from Spain, but here it became a rich and popular poetic form. The 2022 Hay Festival Cartagena will recreate the history and art of la décimawith three great contemporary repentistas: the Cuban Alexis Díaz Pimienta and the Colombians Alfredo Martelo Escobar y Rafael Pérez García. In conversation with Daniel Samper Pizano.

With the support of BAT Foundation
