Let's add some Colombian music, with a classical connection.

I was just looking up unfamiliar music from my orchestra's upcoming season. Our first concert of the season will include a piece titled "Se Fué Mendoza" by Colombian-Canadian composer Juan Diego Díaz. Here's a performance of that piece by the University of British Columbia orchestra:

This piece turns out to be inspired by a Colombian gaita tune called "Llegó Mendoza" by Manuel Mendoza. ("Llegó Mendoza" means "Mendoza arrived" and "Se Fué Mendoza" means "Mendoza left.") The gaita is a flute-like indigenous instrument that is still used today in a number of Colombian folk genres. Here's one version of "Llegó Mendoza":

@AndrewH -

Those are very exciting pieces! 

Will you be playing both of them? 

"Se Fué Mendoza" was very refreshing & light - really enjoyed listening.

"Llegó Mendoza" sounded very familiar, maybe I've just heard the tune that inspired it - made me want to dance! 

Thanx for sharing these!

Btw, one of your videos in Post #5 has been blocked. 

Any way you can replace it with another example?

We're only playing the one for orchestra, "Se Fué Mendoza." I included the other video to show the connection to the gaita tune "Llegó Mendoza" that inspired the orchestral piece "Se Fué Mendoza." 

 

As for post #5, it looks like it's now been blocked from embedding, but you can click on the link in the frame to see the video on YouTube.

Looking at accordion music, I found this sultry waltz from Venezuela. 

Here's a violin lesson for it, taught by Ian Walsh!
