Guajira (music)

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Guajira is a music genre derived from the Punto cubano.

According to some specialists on this theme,[1] the Punto cubano was known in Spain since the 18th century, where it was called "punto de La Habana", and by the second half of the 19th century it was adopted by the incipient Spanish Flamenco style, which included it within its "palos" with the name of Guajira.[2]

The popular Guajira genre was utilized by Spanish Zarzuela composers, such as Ruperto Chapí, who included it in his well known play "La Revoltosa", from 1897. Two years later, in 1899, the Cuban composer Jorge Anckermann inaugurated a new genre with his song "El arroyo que murmura", the first Cuban Guajira.[3]

This song became a model that was adopted by many other Cuban composers at a later time, and was frequently included in the Cuban Zarzuela and vernacular theater.[4]

The Cuban Guajira preserved the characteristic rhythm of its ancestors, the Punto cubano and the Spanish Guajira, which was the sesquiáltera or horizontal Hemiola.

Its form usually alternates a first section in minor mode, with a second section modulating to its direct Major relative. Its lyrics frequently refer to rural themes in an idealistic and bucolic way, and generally evoke the goodness of rural life and romantic love stories.[5]

Guajira de Salón or Guajira-Son

From the 1930s, the Guajira was refined and popularized by the singer and guitarist Guillermo Portabales, whose elegant style was known as Guajira de Salón or Guajira-Son. This is nothing but another case of synonymy within the Cuban popular music, because in spite of being named as Guajira, the style of his songs was nothing else but the one of the Cuban Son and Bolero-Son; although their lyrics were always related to rural themes.[6] Since the thirties until his death in a traffic accident, in 1970, Guillermo Portabales sung and recorded numerous Guajiras de Salón through North and South America with great popular acclaim.

Other renowned performers of Guajira-Son were Celina González, Coralia Fernández, Ramón Veloz y Radeúnda Lima. One of the most famous Guajira-Son is the Guajira Guantanamera, composed by Joseíto Fernández,[7] and internationally popularized, during the 1960s by the American folk singer Pete Seeger.
