La Llonora

We continue with our Latin American traditional music series.

In this video, guitar students from the “Music for Everyone” school interpret “The Weepy“, a hit song by Chavela Vargas during the Fifties.

“The Weepy“ is originally a traditional Mexican song from the late Nineteenth Century, inspired by a folkloric leyend in many Latin American countries. In Honduras, the story character’s name was Siguanaba, the ghost of a woman in sorrow near the river during the night.
