For. Sofia Salinas

Angela Ospina de NichollsAmbassador of Colombia in Mexico, led the presentation of the musical concert of the “Vinasco-Ruiz Duo”, on the occasion of the celebration of 200 years of diplomatic relations between Mexico and Colombia.

Ángela Ospina de Nicholls thanked Ángeles Castro for her kindness and hospitality “for allowing us to commemorate such an important date in such a beautiful setting as the Blas Galindo Auditorium.”

“Commemorating means remembering, and Pablo Rafael de la Madrid used to say, that at some point we were borders, today there are many borders, but curiously those borders are also broken, so commemorating leads us to remember these struggles to establish ourselves as a democratic Republic, and initiate those processes and share values.

“A more modern regional vision, with commercial relations, but above all culture. More than a diplomatic relationship between countries, it is a relationship between peoples, which is perhaps the most important thing.

Ángela Ospina de Nicholls, Ambassador of Colombia in Mexico.

“In 200 years we have established a multidisciplinary link, but the DNA of this relationship is an empathy between peoples and from that empathy, therefore, Mexico and Colombia have a rich, abundant and permanent cultural relationship, our cultural manifestations, from the popular and even perhaps a little more elaborate like the ones we are going to hear tonight makes this relationship close, warm, solid and growing”, he said.

The musical duo made up of the Mexican pianist Edith Ruiz Zepeda and the Colombian clarinetist Javier Asdrúbal Vinasco, performed “Legado” by the Colombian Luis Carlos Erazo; “Fantasía” by the Colombian musician Luis Antonio Escobar; and “Sonata” for piano and clarinet, by the Colombian Diego Vega, as well as the musical pieces “Mambo Ninón, by Gabriela Ortiz; “Zarabandeo”, by Arturo Márquez, and “Jarabe” from the suite “Transparencias” by Mexican Eduardo Gamboa.

At the Blas Galindo Auditorium, of the National Center for the Arts (Cenart) in Mexico City, we accompanied Ambassador Ángela Ospina, and the Vinasco-Ruiz Duo, journalists; legislators; representatives of the Foreign Ministries of both countries, including Minister Luis Carlos Rodríguez Gutiérrez and Ema Luz Pineda Rosero; members of the Colombian community in Mexico; and the Mexico-Colombia Chamber of Commerce; as well as Ambassadors Paivi Marianne Pohjanheimo, from Finland; Panky Sharma, from India; Wilfred Mohr, from Holland, and more special guests.
