Tune of the Day: National Anthem of Colombia

Arranged for solo flute

The Colombian national anthem was composed by Oreste Sindici, an Italian-born musician who had studied in Rome. He arrived to Bogotá in 1865, at the age of 37, as a singer with an opera company, and lived in Colombia until his death. In 1887 he was asked to compose the music for a poem written by Rafael Núñez. This song, originally released for the commemoration of the Independence of the city of Cartagena de Indias, eventually became the official national anthem of Colombia in 1920.
