Joe Arroyo was a Colombian cultural hero. A singer, composer and songwriter who pioneered the national flavour of Colombian salsa and tropical music by pursuing fusion with styles from the African Diaspora, he changed what it meant to be Colombian. This square has a large monument statue of him in the middle. Apparently, the best way to pay tribute to Joe is to get some food from a nearby restaurant, plug some of his music into your ears, and stand here listening while you people watch. Recommended tracks include "la rebelión" "Tania" and "El ausente". You can’t hang out here for long though; there is barely any shade from the sun.
