(In touch with) The Folklore Reality


Argentine folklore music mainly refers to the integration of native expressions from different regions of the country accompanied by musical landscapes that arrived from far off territories and the very interesting contribution of regional migrations, from the country to the city, from the provinces to Buenos Aires. This myriad of landscapes, rhythms and textures entailed the occurrence of very interesting experiences of projection and fusion, without losing the local identity. Modified or newly incorporated instruments, different musical styles corresponding to different regions of the country harmonically tune the folklore music. By linking generations, a place of rendezvous with top artists in constant innovation, the Argentine folklore movement is renowned and valued in different countries of the world.
