List of genres

The collected repertory can be searched in two ways:
a) in alphabetical order by genre; and
b) according to a classification in three groups: “canto” (vocal works), “canto y baile” (vocal works with dancing) and “instrumental music".
This section of the web is under construction. As we incorporate more works to the databe, we will add more genres and we will study the possibility of other classifications (for instance, by annual cycle or liturgical calendar).
In 2015 we have added here the category (not a genre) "Violencia de género", since from now on we intend to mark with a purple ribbon in our catalog those pieces of oral tradition which have a text particularly violent against women. In this way, we want to call attention to the problem of violence against women in today's society and to facilitate research about it in connection with the transmission of traditional music.
