The governments of Colombia and the United Arab Emirates are planning to finalize an agreement governing the arrival of the South American country’s military to Gulf state, attracted by high wages. As reported by Roberto Velez Vallejo, Colombian Ambassador in Abu Dhabi, currently about 1,500 soldiers are part of the UAE Armed Forces, which represents more than 50 percent of Colombians who live in that area and, as direct consequence of this migratory movement will more.

DOTD – 026 – From the Interior of Colombia

This is in Gualmatán, in the province of Nariño, Colombia.

The music is clearly a mix of Western Motiffs with Arabic influence. The men are dressed as Hindu Rajas not Arabs, so the demarcation of culture is blurred.

At (3:00) three minutes, so genuine Arab music kicks in.

However, again, most of these people probably do not have Arab blood in them. Arabic motiffs, and dancing are mainstream in South America.
