this is a video of the song bayardo san roman. he’s a character of one of my favourite bookschronicle of a death foretoldby gabriel garcia marquez. the book does not tell anything about bayardo’s later whereabouts. marquez only says he left town and was never seen again. no one knows what happened to him.

I overheard an interview, actually more a casual conversation between an elderly bayardo and a stranger at a bar somwhere in south america. it is the only time bayardo ever mentioned the circumstances discribed by marquez and what happened to him after the story ended.

I was able to capture the conversation in sound and word.
