The World's Musical Traditions, Vol. 9: Musical Traditions of Portugal

Portugal has a rich heritage of musical styles localized in different part of the country. These 1988 recordings of dances, songs, and instrumental music include dance music and a ballad from the northeast, ritual songs from the central eastern region, unaccompanied vocal polyphony from the south, instrumental music played on Portuguese guitars from the central city of Coimbra, and some examples of folk revival traditions from the Tagus valley and the northwestern region. Includes a deluxe 76-page booklet with map, photographs, and notes in English and Portuguese. 30 tracks. 70 minutes. "An impressive collection...highly listenable and substantial introduction to the regional styles and textures of Portuguese traditional musics." — Folkroots (UK)
