Sultana del Ávila (Pasodoble) - Los Cañoneros [English - Español]

8개월 전

One of the most famous characters of Caracas in the 30s was the tenor Lorenzo Herrera, who was an idol of the time. But beyond his fame as a singer (and later an actor), he was a great composer who left countless songs that have been successful in Venezuelan popular music.

This song is one of them. Although the author referred to a woman as the sultana of El Ávila (El Ávila is the mountain that borders Caracas), over time that term came to be used to refer to the city. For this reason it is like a kind of hymn to Caracas.

I wanted to make an arrangement for this pasodoble that would have a different sound, so I included a lot of wooden percussion, blocks, bells, marímbola and as a solo instrument the xylophone, performed by Jesús Bosque.

Uno de los personajes más famosos de Caracas en los años 30 fue el tenor Lorenzo Herrera, quien era ídolo de la época. Pero más allá de su fama como cantante (y posteriormente actor), fue un gran compositor que dejó innumerables canciones que han sido éxito en la música popular venezolana.

Esta canción es una de ella. Aunque el autor se refería como sultana del Ávila (el Ávila es la montaña que bordea Caracas) a una mujer, con el tiempo ese término pasó a utilizarse para referirse a la ciudad. Por esta razón es como una especie de himno a Caracas.

A este pasodoble quise hacerle un arreglo que tuviera una sonoridad diferente, por eso incluí mucha percusión de madera, blocks, campanas, marímbola y como instrumento solista el xilófono, interpretado por Jesús Bosque.
