    Hey!

    How are you all doing? Hope you are doing great

    I'm peruvian but lived and studied in Argentina for almost 9 years. Been quarantined over here for a few weeks so I just started recording some guitar arrangments of Argentinian Folk music.

    They have a few mistakes and were recorded with the equipment I have at hand but would love to hear what you think!


    La estancia Vieja - Atahualpa Yupanqui




    Milonga de Pampa y Cielo - Victor Velasquez




    Stay indoors and take care

    Lovely playing, very neat. Isn't Milonga something to do with Fado? I could look it up of course. But that's why you're here!

    Hi Hugo, thanks


    Not that I know of. Its similar in its latin roots and flavor been Fado the musical root of Lisboa and Tango and Milonga to the city of Buenos Aires, Argentina. I would say it is more rooted (talking about influences) in Choro from Brazil and Habanera from Cuba.

    I haven't heard much Fado but of what I've heard it tends to be slightly more metric and/or loose than milonga.

    Milongas tend to have a repetitive cadence been build over on 123 123 12 rhythm. Also , both milongas I shared are Milongas Pampeanas (mm from the prairies?) that are slightly different the ones from the city more closely related to Tango.

    Ah, yes. I can see the connection to Tango. A teacher of Tango I know uses the term but in a sort of juerga way (flamenco). Thanks.

    Lovely playing! I've never heard any of Victor Velaquez' music before, but just a couple of weeks ago I came a cross a 78 of Atahualpa Yupanqui and and got it out of curiosity... I like his playing a lot. Thanks for posting!

    Thanks Frankie!

    Atahualpa has a very soulful kind of playing. He , with his partner, wrote tons of beautiful music and lyrics about the argentinan life and landscape outside of the city. Glad you enjoyed it!

    Spain is the birthplace of the guitar. Spain and Latin America are where the seeds were grown to produce the beautiful flowers we have today. To discover the nature of the guitar, one must study this important music. Good playing . . . Marinero
