Synopsis

Album Description
At night after work, after eating a simple meal and sharing the customary Mate (popular herbal tea), los peones (the workers), typically would start dancing and singing improvisations or telling stories of their ancestries, usually to the strums and melodies of a European guitar. The passionate musical expressions of these new people (who are known as Los Gauchos or Criollos) find their voice in the solo guitar of Argentine master, Roberto Lara. An extrordinarily beautiful collection of guitar pieces from Argentina that deserves a place in every world and classical collection.

(5 out of 5 stars)

"This outstanding collection scores in threee areas. If you are an afficionado of the classic acoustic guitar, this is a jewel of both technique and style; one can listen and admire the virtuosity of the artist. If you enjoy the traditional music of latin america, this brings to life the traditions of the argentine pampas in a most elegant manner. Not least, as pure listening enjoyment, for quiet relaxation, or as background for reading a good book, this is tops."
