MILKING SONGS ( Spanish version)

The Milking  Songs were performed by farmers to their cows. This ritual takes place before milking the cow or during the act to make them feel at ease and relax them, therefore obtaining a larger quantity of milk. Colombian & Venezuelan farmers and their animals used to have a very close bond, however this tradition has been lost with new generations because nowadays cows are milked by machines instead of people. The Milking songs were declared Intangible Heritage and this video is a homage to this tradition; to the farmers and to countryside life.
