When separating from Bolívar,

the Sinú shines.

History is marked

on June 18, 1952.

A territory was reborn,

illuminated by its waters.

 

To the sound of euphoniums,

lips guapirrean1,

the porro2 and its harmony,

which is a culture,

a tradition.

 

At the brightness of an awakening,

in the magical paths of the Zenú,

the romosinuano3, the cañaflecha4,

the delicious rosquitas5, the mote6, reign.

 

Córdoba, an illusion,

of prosperous soils,

where the blood beats

in the melodic steps

that move with passion.

 

 

Meanings:

 

  1. Guapirrean: they scream with joy.
  2. Porro: typical music of the savannahs of Córdoba and Sucre and the Sinú valley.
  3. Romosinuano: hornless bull of the Sinú valley.
  4. Cañaflecha: plant from which crafts are made.
  5. Rosquitas: crispy fried snack, made from cassava dough, and shaped like a small donut.
  6. Mote: yam and cheese soup.
