Latin America: Chile (The Cueca)
 
Hi all,

This week in the All Around This World weekly online class we explore Chile, learning the cueca, Chile's "national dance." 

Patrons, I'll be sending you a separate message with your rewards.

This Week We Visit Chile

This week in music class we go south south south with an exploration of Chile, a 4000 mile long, 100 mile wide strip of stunningly beautiful land that runs like a ribbon along half of South America’s western/Pacific coast.  To meet it in class we sing, we dance, we sing some more . . .  (All Around This World's main Chile page

This week in class we'll be dancing...

The Cueca is Chile's "national dance." In the cueca, a rooster courts a chicken just as one would on the farm -- by spinning a white kerchief and dancing in circles.... (more )

This week in class we'll be singing:

We sing "We Are Happy," a hello song from Uganda, to open every class. This week we greet each other in Mapudungun, the language of the Mapuche, an ethnic group indigenous to Chile. 

"Las Mañanitas" is a  well-known Spanish birthday song, usually sung to honor the birthday boy or girl before eating the cake.... (more )  

"Our Story May Be Sad" is a Garifuna song comes from the Honduras and Belize, derived from the opening lines of an epic story performed as a dance by a couple.... ()

“La llave” means “the key.” All Around This World adapted this from a Spanish folk song called “Estrellita” which is about a girl finding the best occupation for herself, disliking all of them except the job of teacher.... (more

"La Luna" is a Spanish song about the moon found in several parts of Latin America that accompanies a game during which all the kids dance in a circle around one child who stands in the middle.... (more

A Little More: 

In the ’60s and early ’70s, Chilean songwriters like Victor Jara and Violeta Parra used the Chilean "tonada" as a foundation of the “Nueva Canción,” explicitly political music that blended Chilean folk with progressive politics, similar to the way Bob Dylan and Joan Baez led a political folk revival at the time in the U.S.    

Watch this video of Victor Jara singing, "Te Recuerdo Amanda."   

Enjoy!
