Something interesting!! But it's in Spanish....
« on: April 10, 2018, 10:06:16 PM »

I found an entire documentary about the 2-row button accordion in folk Chilean music! Particularly in one small geographic location.

Very interesting. Unfortunately, there are no translated subtitles....  :(

There are several musical segments with interesting melodeon tunes that are dying out in Chile.

It also touches on how the button accordion in the folk music is being replaced by the dreaded piano accordion....  :( :'(

Very interesting! Feels just like the Melnet community!
A translation of some parts would be interesting to read.
Thanks

Thank you for the link. I just gave a 2 row Hohner button accordion to a family from Honduras, and passed this on to them.

Thank you! i always wonder what the chilean's music sound like in Melodeon because i know they boarders with Argentina which happened to be the gateway for accordeons coming to America back in the 40s at least for obvious reasons.

the interviewer is almost asking the same questions to the players:
How did they learn to play?
answer: self taught.

What was a popular place or day to play?
 answer: weekends at noon to midnight called (practice session) but it was normally booked around their holidays popularly seen around Feb.+
Are they from a musician family inheritance:
answer is yes all of them have a family member that plays music.

Are they teaching or passing this knowledge along:
Answer no locals have their preference of music for piano accordion

What genre's of music you normally play song in? Cumbia, Waltz, Ranchera, and their local rythm known as (Cueca) not sure if I spelled this right. min 27 of the video if you wanna check out the sample.

where did instrument came from? answer: their parents brought them from Argentina

The last person on the interviews is Blind, 83, he used to play bandoneon as well he is improvising the whole time he remembers only like one name from the songs he plays :D

Very interesting! Feels just like the Melnet community!

Thanks for that explanation. The thing I found interesting was the local scenery, it looked a really pleasant place.

The blue one in the beginning looks like a Swedish "Hagström Marita"
