    Hello there, my fellow musicians and music lovers!


    Back for a consecutive week on the second round of this Hive Music Fest. Today, I'm going back to basics with a simple piece. This is one of those themes I consider the essentials for all learners on Traditional Venezuelan Music. To be more specific, it is for all those musicians from the Plains.

    The song in essence is "Fiesta en Elorza" by Eneas Perdomo. This is a very festive song that talks about a celebration in a town named Elorza located in the Venezuelan Plains. During March 19th there's a Festival that involves Joropo and other genres of music. I don't know if this is still held, but it was quite a party. Enough to inspire this song.

    This piece is always in my mind because March 19th is the day of Saint Joseph, the patron of artisans and also the patron of the town of Elorza. I'm not religious, but I remember the dates since I attended a Catholic School. That date also coincides with my grandma's Birthday. That why she was named Josefina (that's the feminine of Jose, Joseph' Spanish Translation).

    The idea of coming back to this piece is playing the essential skills of soloist Venezuelan Cuatro, trying to keep the melody while not forgetting about the rhythm and harmony. It's a tough thing to keep moving both hands with coordination. But it is possible through practice. That's all for now!

    I hope you like this cover!


    Cover de Fiesta en Elorza


    ¡Buen día mis colegas músicos y amantes de la música!


    Volvemos por segunda semana consecutiva por esta segunda ronda del Hive Music Festival. Hoy, me regreso a lo básico con este pieza. Este debe ser uno de los temas más estudiados por quienes se incian en la música tradicional, especialmente en el caso de los llaneros.

    La canción se llama "Fiesta en Elorza". Fue compuesta por Eneas Perdomo en honor al Festival de Elorza, una fiesta de la música llanera que se lleva acabo el 19 de marzo. No sé si esto sigue existiendo por temas de la pandemia, pero era un evento de mucha relevancia en el mundo de la música llanera. De no ser así, no tendría una canción como esta.

    Esta pieza siempre está en mi mente por varias razones. Primero, el 19 de marzo es el día de San José, santo patrón de los artesanos (también es el patrón de la población de Elorza). No es que sea religioso, pero asistir a una escuela católica me dejó varias fechas en mente. Aunque, la más importante es que ese era el día de cumpleaños de mi abuela. Así, pues, en la tradición usual de los onomásticos, mi abuela se llamaba Josefina.

    La idea de regresar a un tema básico es seguir practicando la esencia del estilo de rasgapunteo. Eso de hacer coincidir la melodía con el ritmo y la armonía al mismo tiempo. Un verdadero enredo para ambas manos, pero que es posible al practicar bastante. Eso es todo por ahora.

    Espero que este cover les guste.
