Chamame kills coronavirus!

In these times of uncertainty, hundreds of coastal musicians recorded a video with an important message. Chamame kills coronavirus!


As soon as the video begins to play, we get goosebumps. Maybe it's the stress accumulated, after several days of confinement.  But there is something in the message of these unique musicians that reaches us to the most intimate fibers . You don't have to be a fan of chamamé or  folklore  to feel it. Perhaps it is due to the presence of the  bandoneon , that instrument so typical and respected in Argentina and the world. Possibly, it is the calm and full of  wisdom  composure of all those renowned artists who talk to us looking straight in the eye. Basically everyone says the same thing, “ stay home .” And, without knowing why, when we hear it, it makes us want to listen. Is it that chamamé kills  coronavirus ?

 The bandoneon community 

The  video  circulating on the networks is called “Chamamé Conciencia”, and has two parts. In both, the most outstanding references of Chamamecera music participate. In other words, geniuses such as Monchito Merlo, Néstor Barrios, Juan Montiel, Santhyago Ríos  ,  Antonio Tarragó  Ros and many more. the living room of your home, everyone advises us. “Let's be supportive,” “we'll win this battle,” they say.  With their musical instruments on the lap or on the side, the Chamamecera community invites us to reflect. To think about the other, to take care of each other.

This whole community of  solidarity  musicians did not come out of nowhere, or overnight.  The initiator of the project was  Santhyago Rios  , who had the idea of making an awareness message to the community. But, for this to have a greater impact, he asked for the help of his colleagues, his friends in the chamamé. The reception among the artists was so good and crowded that audiovisual was put together in two parts. In the video, all musicians ask in brief words that the population does not move from their homes. Respect the quarantine. As accordionist Emiliano López says, “Stay at home, chamigo, enjoy some good chamamés and some rich  mattes .” Or, as many others say, chamame kills coronavirus!
