Venezuela: Rafael Bolívar Coronado, Writer With Unorthodox Methods

  11 February 2008

El Alma Llanera (The Soul from the Plains) is Venezuela's second national anthem and the song used by most party hosts in this country to send their guests home. Its lyrics were written by Rafael Bolívar Coronado, a writer who should be known more for his brilliant works, but is often more recognized for the stunts and unorthodox ways to pursue a living. The works, but especially these actions, are alive in the Venezuelan blogosphere and internet forums.
