30th Anniversary for University for Peace: 10th December 2010

We were given a chance to play for the 30th Anniversary for University for Peace. This ceremony was particularly dedicated to the school founder: Rodrigo Carazo Odio, who was a former Costa Rican president from 1978 to 1982. He passed away in 2009. (cf:

We were asked to play Latin American music, so what we opted were:
-Libertabgo (Astor Piazzola) 
-Luna Liberiana (Jesus Bomilla) 

As for Libertango, needless to say, Astor Piazzola is famous for Tango composer from Argentine.

Luna Liberiana was composed by a Costa Rican composer called "Jesus Bomilla", and what a coincidence, 2010 was the 75th anniversary after it was composed.

Someone at the ceremony told me that "Luna Liberiana" is in the heart of Costa Rican people with the memories of summer time when they were young.

It was warm moment that guests for the ceremony joined us to sing when we started playing it, seemed like people were remembering their past times.
