LOS CONTRATENORES

Entre los tipos de voces se encuentra un caso muy especial: los contratenores, voces masculinas asombrosamente agudas.

Evaristo nos lo explica de forma muy sencilla en este vídeo:

THE GAMELAN, from Indonesia, from the islands of Bali or Java.

THE STEEL BAND was created in the late 1930’s by musicians in Trinidad. Since that time, it has become the “national instrument” of Trinidad and Tobago. A complete set of “pans” can almost reproduce the range of a symphony orchestra, with a range of soprano or tenor pans, guitar pans, “double-seconds”, 4-bass, 6-bass, and others.

Remember, remember…the 5th of November.

In Britain, every November the 5th people burn effigies in bonfire during celebrations with lots of fireworks: it’s Guy Fawkes Night! it’s a special day in honour of a historic event.

In November 1605 a group of men made a plan to blow up the House of Parliament (the government buildings) in London. The plan is known as the “Gunpowder Plot”. A man called Guy Fawkes had been commissioned to set off the explosion. The police found the gunpowder before it exploded and they caught the people involved in the plot. They were tortured and killed. From that day forward, people of England have a bonfire with Fawkes’ effigie and fireworks every 5th of November.

There is as well a traditional rhyme about the Gunpowder Plot popularised by the movie V for Vendetta:

Nos deja uno de los pioneros del rock and roll

Hoy recibimos la triste noticia del fallecimiento de Fats Domino.

Aunque no fuera tan conocido como Chuck Berry o Elvis Presley, es una de las figuras claves en el nacimiento y difusión del rock and roll. Hablando claramente: sin él, la música que escucháis todos los días no sería la misma.

Os recomiendo leer alguno de loa artículos sobre la triste noticia y, sobre todo,  pinchad en los enlaces a los vídeos de sus actuaciones. No os van a defraudar.
