This performance treats about the trip of a song "Asturias, patria querida", the anthem of Asturias. It's supposed that this popular song had its origin in 2 countries. It's suspected that the melody was adapted from one that there were singing Polish miners who were going to work to the mines of the Cuencas Mineras del Caudal and of Mineras at the beginning of the 20th century, later a son of an Asturian emigrant in Cuba, Ignacio Piñeiro, wrote the song to honour his father who returned to Asturias to die.

In the action, a piper, son of a Polish family bought property in the region, begins to touch the melody and later a Cuban, resident tenor in Oviedo for already 8 years, sings this anthem of going and return.
