A native of Bogota, Columbia, Lozano here presents the thesis for her 2009 master's degree in peace studies at the University of Innsbrook, Switzerland. Having done her bachelor's work on the music of displaced people in Bogota, she moves her focus to communities on the country's Pacific coast. She asks whether the act of playing marimba music is an act of resistance to the oppressive regime, whether it is a manifestation of peace, and so whether the musicians from Guapi are making peace by playing their vernacular music. She does not provide an index. Distributed in the US by ISBS.
