Mija Música: El ritmo

Season: 4 Episode: 2
Published on

In this episode, Gavilán wants to learn more about his abuelo, so he meets El Guacho, a vallenato musician and very close friend of Lolo’s. El Guacho tells him the story of the two rhythm instruments of cumbia and vallenato: the caja and the guacharaca, and how so many rhythms, and even a rather fortunate accident, trace their roots to these two sounds. 

This week’s recommendation is the music of Gabriel Duéñez. He’s a sonidero from Monterrey, and he’s the one to thank for the “accident” that gave life to the now beloved cumbia rebajada. Visit our website, that you can find in our shownotes, for links to his music.
