The Music And Culture Of South America.
Music to listen to with your heart and soul,where language doesn't really matter.
There is music,poetry and songs that transcends the language created all throughout history all over the world,and as I've grown older I've been opening my ears and mind to more and more different music from all over the world from all ages of history and from very different cultures.That fact brings me to share some music from the corner of the earth where I am originally from and it is my belief that if you literally understand what the themes of the songs are about you should be able to get a general idea of the meaning and spark some curiosity to discover more sounds ,different sounds and through music,be able to understand that although human beings from different places may have very different cultures and traditions.However different, no one group of men or women possesses in their trove of historical treasures more wealth than any other,but only different.
The Music of Uruguay
The music of Uruguay is related to the music of the region the country is in.Rio Grande do Sul ,and the southern part of Brazil,Paraguay,and the provinces of Misiones ,Entre ,Rios, Buenos Aires and La Pampa in Argentina.But as a sub-region which La Banda Oriental ,(predecessor of what today is Uruguay) is ,the music of Uruguay has had its own development and evolution as represented by,Cielitos,Milonga,Tango,Candombe,La Polca,El Chote , which later all came to live under the big umbrella of what was named Folklore and even more recently Canto Popular.But the music of Uruguay has also been enriched by the influence of Rock and Roll,Jazz and Bossa Nova, if you open your ears and your mind you will be able to identify rhythms and music from all over the world embedded in the Uruguayan music but it is incorporated and transformed in such a way that a whole new sound has been born.
