Visita a mi familia - El amor y la tristeza viendo como mi familia en este lado vive  despues no verlas en 3 anios// Family visit - the love and the sadness, coming back after 3 years and seeing the conditions in which my family up here lives.

My notes, to “celebrate” the “independence” of Colombia:

Y bueno, pasar 20 de Julio en Colombia, después de haber pasado casi un mes aqui por fin al lado de mi familia en La Guajira Wayuu, viendo como a mi gente en nuestro territorio nos roban mas aun que al Colombiano Arijuna/común, no se siente muy bien. El caos de los carros en Barranquilla y como pretenden volver a la ciudad en “Miami” copiando la arquitectura mas barata de mal gusto de ahi es preocupante - la situación con la frontera con Venezuela quizá la peor que he vivido en años. Que orgullo Colombiano hay después de James Rodriguez? Y que estupidez y racismo interno tan grande que la gente aun proclama “Nación gloriosa”? Cual gloria si mis vecinos no tienen que comer? Vuelvo a Canada en 10 dias, al menos me voy inspirada, con amor y cosas reales para integrar en mi musica. Aqui vine y grabe las voces y musicas de mi gente Wayuu por lo menos, antes que vengan un Britanico, Gringo o Cachacho de mierda a robar lo que es nuestro, mas que el maldito gobierno de KKKolombia. //

And well, spending 20th of July in Colombia, after bieng in my family’s embrace for almost a month now, seeing how our people, the Wayuu in our territory suffer most from the injustice of a corrupt government. It does not feel too good. The chaos from the overcrowding of cars in the city and the stupid attempt to make it a sort of “Miami” building the tackiest condos is something to worry about. The situation with the Venezuelan boarder is incredibly difficult. What more pride can we carry as nation that is not James Rodriguez? What silly “Glorious Nation” are we celebrating when our neighbours have nothing to eat? I will be back in Canada in 10 days, but still, I leave this place inspired, full of love and realness to include in my music. I have been recording the music of my people, the Wayuu, and I am doing it myself, before a fucking Brit, “Yankee” or White Colombian decides to steal it from us, like everything else, due to the KKKoruption in KKKolombia.
