This time, it was a careful and painstaking job of direct listening to the valuable record of recordings of the repertoire, in the voices of female singers found in the Patricia Chavarría Traditional Culture Archive. After listening, the group made a selection of more than a dozen songs, which make known the various themes that the tune presents.
Greetings, romance, parties, threshing floors and wakes, they capture the audience by showing them the traditional poetics that took root in verses and songs, inherited by generations and that is maintained until today, realizing how feelings are beautifully expressed through music. .
The transposed guitar is also maintained with its various tunings, execution techniques (strumming, trilling, plucking) and tenths that give the staging a common thread that allows the viewer to meet with your identity and root.
Milka Lépez, member of the group” She comments that the entire selection is intertwined with décimas “created by ourselves, which present the singer who delivered those tunes”. She adds that the work has theatrical overtones, & # 8220; we take texts from singer interviews and we represent it there on stage, with tenths, sayings & # 8230; this has a whole meaning, a fabric, of singing, poetry, feelings”.
