The Best Díaz, followed by a Vallenato concert by Leandro Díaz

Cartagena 2010 , 
The nickname of one of the characters in Love in the Time of Cholera, by Gabriel García Márquez, comes from a verse by Leandro Díaz. This popular master of the Vallenato genre, a blind jester – like Homer – comes from a family of musicians. Some of them will accompany him in his debut at the Hay Festival. The journalist Daniel Samper Pizano talks to him about his life and career.
