VIDALA is named after a poetic musical form drawn upon traditional Argentinian folk music. It describes the Andean wide open spaces, the innermost being and solitude of its inhabitants.
Vidala, an eponym album, revisits the songs of Atahualpa Yupanqui, Violeta Parra, Víctor Jara, Daniel Viglietti as well as Mercedes Sosa, most prominent Chilean, Argentinian, and Uruguayan figures of the 1970s/80s folk-inspired and socially-committed movement Nueva canción and most famous proponents of the traditional Latin American folk music revival.
All of the words of these poet writers unveil not only the arid beauty and solitary landscapes inhabited by Argentinian Julio Santos Espinosa’s or Atahualpa Yupanqui’s vidalas but also the harsh and precarious lives of the Indians, miners, workers, farmers as well as of the Latin American former African slaves. Behind this sensitive répertoire often lies a social critique.
Chacarera, milonga, tango, bolero, zamba, danza criolla, canción india are as many danses and songs sensitively revisited by the musicians of Vidala.
