Description

Venezuela's Caribbean coastal town of Naiguatá is home to one of that country's most celebrated Carnival musical traditions. In the 1970's, trumpeter Ricardo Díaz augmented the local legacy of Afro-Caribbean drumming traditions with brass, electric bass, keyboard, and women's chorus to create La Sardina de Naiguatá, the musical group that drives the town's annual cycle of public celebrations, including Carnival, Corpus Christi, and St. John the Baptist. ¡Parranda! brings us the contemporary, joyous sounds of the pre-Christian rite of "burying the sardine" to promote an abundant harvest of fish and crops. 20 tracks, 53 minutes, 40-page booklet with extensive bilingual notes. This album is part of the Smithsonian Folkways Tradiciones/Traditions Series of Latino music albums, produced with support by the Smithsonian Latino Center.
