      Description hide

      Accordions and guitars have enlivened the social life of cattle-herding gaucho families of northern Uruguay since the mid 1800s. On Los Gauchos de Roldán, regional musical icon Walter Roldán pumps out time-honored polcas and chotis, Brazilian-tinged maxixas, and more on his button accordion as Chichí Vidiella adds the lush color of the bandoneÓn. Bernardo Sanguinetti's guitar and Richardo Cunha's percussive, deep-pitched guitarrÓn immerse the melodies in a rich nest of rhythms and harmonies, which formerly-exiled singer-songwriter Numa Moraes treats us to five gems of his repertoire. 19 tracks, 55 minutes of music, 40-page bilingual booklet.
