MOON LIVE ENTERTAINMENT Presents Paraguayan Music Festival “Polkas & Guaranias”
The most famous style of music is Guarania, created by the Paraguayan musician José Asunción Flores in 1926. The Guarania accomplishes this by using a combination of slow rhythms and melodies of melancholia character.
Paraguayan polka, also known as Danza Paraguaya (Paraguayan dance), is a style of music created in Paraguay in the 19th century. The Paraguayan polka is very different from the traditional polka, mainly because the Paraguayan version combines ternary and binary rhythms, whereas the European only uses binary.
The Paraguayan music is very special, although being the only South American country where the majority of its inhabitants speak the language of indigenous origins; its music has an origin of European.
The Paraguayan Harp deserves special mention as a popular instrument with a national style associated with it.
Most of the Paraguayan Music is sung in Guarani language (native language), and Guarani Culture is one of the ancestral cultures that are still alive in modern times and still prevails in these digital times.
