Kaha di Òrgel platform

Aruba and Curacao have a long history and common bond on the subject of the Caha di Orgel. They always supported each other in the preservation of the musical heritage of the Caha di Orgel.

As part of this preservation project, a Caha di Orgel platform was launched recently in Curacao. This launch is the reason behind the courtesy visit of the book authors from Curacao to Aruba.

The director of the National Library of Aruba, Mrs. Astrid Britten, received a book titled: ’Kahanan di Músika: e forma divino pa alegrá kurason! from its authors Mrs. Marilyn Alcalá-Wallé, Herta Parabirsing-Balentina and Nidia Rosaria- Wallé’.
