Violeta Parra - Cantos Folklóricos Chilenos

Post by Blanco » Fri Sep 27, 2013 5:12 am

This list is not an EOY list, or something like that. It is BETTER. :D
It is a list with the same style of the National Recording Preservation Board (USA) - The National Recording Registry, which is already included in AM.

This is a list of songs made ​​by Violeta Parra, one of the greatest musicians in the Chilean music. The list, as its name implies, is of Chilean folkloric (folk [?]) songs gathered in book form, and published posthumously in 1979, with the poetic text of each song, which was compiled in the 50's, besides presenting each performer and make a musical transcription of each piece, made by Luis G. Soublette. She wanted to prevent Chilean folk music was thrown into oblivion. For that reason you will see many songs from the same artist. Each of the songs has a story behind it, and each is rich poetically speaking.

Probably none of these songs will have a place in AM, as perhaps no other list will refer to these songs (Or who knows, maybe some day in a good future). But I think we should include the list not only because they make the great musical heritage that Chile had before receiving much international influence, not only because they are poetic pieces that narrate the life and work of Chileans in the early to mid-century, but because Violet gave his life so that these songs were recognized by the credit they deserve, and I think her work must be not in vain. If she had known that people like us, in other parts of the world, would value music like this, maybe she would not have taken his life.

I read on the internet that Violeta Parra collected up to 3000 songs for this book, but at least in the version I got, only this small list appears. If I can find that list, I'll post here. :)

If you are interested in the subject, here it is explained the development of the list. (Not only that footnote, but the entire page. It is written in Spanish, but it is easy to translate.)
Also, this may help if you are unsure about whether to include this list or not. (More explanation)
