Bambuco is a Colombian musical genre that could be considered a national symbol and still evokes some kind of patriotic feeling. In Wilson y Los Más Elegantes we witness the birth of a new musical trio, which interprets traditional Colombian songs at family gatherings. The trio is composed of two native guitar players and a foreign singer who does everything possible, and more, to become a local. We follow the main character throughout his complex subjective experience and through the eyes of his bystanders.
