La música de Asturias

  • Published in Articles

La música es un sentimiento, una identidad, una actitud ante la vida. Se traslada a cada delimitación geográfica, que le imprime su propio carácter.En Asturias, desde los ancestrales sonidos celtas, desde los ecos del lírico " lied", origen de la tonada, llegamos, en el último tramo del siglo XX, tras la instauración de la cleptocracia borbónica, y en el marco geográfico de la cuenca central asturiana, al surgimiento de una música estrictamente identitaria de la tierra de la que nace , perfectamente distinguida y distinguible .
