Latin American Folk Songs: Sung in Spanish by Chago Rodrigo

Latin American Folk Songs: Sung in Spanish by Chago Rodrigo

Chago Rodrigo opens a window into Latin American culture and identity through this collection of children’s folk songs. Simple acoustic guitar accompaniment and standard strophic form allow Rodrigo to identify each character—such as a cowboy, a lover, and a star—and let his or her story come through. The final song highlights the marginalized identity of blacks in Latin America, emphasizing the “otherness” felt by slaves imported to Cuba and the Caribbean.
