Could it be that playing marimba music is an act of resistance? Could it
be a peace practice? Are musicians from the South Colombian Pacific
coast performing peace by playing their vernacular music? These pages
are concerned with those questions, and also with the reflections about
the concept of peace that they trigger. Through an ethnographical
research, this book attempts to grasp peace as an active practice of
self-assertion exercised in the daily life of the musicians from a
traditionally alienated region in Colombia.
