Our rhythms: the folk music of the coast
The coastal area of our country has the peculiarity of bordering different countries. Hence their culture is mixed with that of these and, of course, their music too. The folk music of the coast is infused with currents coming from Brazil, Paraguay, and Uruguay. We’ll tell you what their typical rhythms are.
The coastal area comprises the provinces of Misiones, Chaco, Formosa, Currents, Between Ríos and some areas of Santa Fe. Misiones borders two countries: Brazil and Paraguay. This is how Guaraní blends with some traits of the culture of southern Brazil. History also left its mark for this area: European immigration brought the schotis, which, with local contributions, became the most popular rhythm. From Paraguay also came gallop, the dance that occupies the second place in popular preferences.
In Formosa, Chacoand, above all, in Corrientes, there is an important Guarani influence. There the chamaméreigns, as well as the double scratch and the valseado. In Entre Ríos , chamarrita is common, a replica of Uruguayan overpass.
All these rhythms reach Santa Fe, especially the chamamé. The folk music of the coast is melodious; the lyrics have a loving tone and sometimes a testimonial character. The accordion, bandoneon, guitar and, in some cases, the Indian harp are the preferred musical instruments. To dance? All these rhythms are danced in a linked couple.
