A "Parranda" (street party) in a house in El Cafetal barrio, Villanueva. Sonia dancing with a neighbour. A parranda is a big part of a Vallenato's lifestyle: in a parranda you listen vallenato classics, you dance and most of all, you drink. You hear so much vallenato that it seems the last will of the people, you so much alcohol that it seems that all the reserves of whiskey and beer will be exhausted. If Villanueva is the core of Vallenato, the Barrio of El Cafetal (until recently a heavily guerrilla controlled area) is the core of Villanueva: for being the cradle of vallenato music, for the bohemian lifestyle of its people and for the cafeteros and the activities that revolve around the coffee production.
