Baguala: singing without dancing
The baguala is a musical genre that forms part of the folklore native to the peoples of the northwest of the country, descendants of the Diaguitas communities. It is not danceable and was very popular among indigenous communities in that region.
They are songs formed by octosyllable verses that are usually improvised. They are accompanied by a uniform ternary rhythm in slow tempo, which is marked with the box. This instrument is played by the same singer, who is marking the times.
The baguala is part of the music with box, characteristic of that used in the festive and sacred rituals of the Andes. It runs accompanied by the quena and the erque. This is a typical instrument of that region three or four meters long.The
coplero is followed by the rest of the performers, singing in repetitions similar to the responsos.
