Profundidades / Por Una Cabeza


Profundidades (taranta). Composed by Rafael Riqueni (1962, Spain) and performed by Grisha Goryachev.

The taranta style of flamenco belongs to the family of Cantes de Levante (i.e., songs from Levante) from the eastern region of Spain where it seems the style originated. Like most flamenco, the taranta was originally created for guitar and voice. It is a direct descendant of the Spanish fandango but with no meter or tempo (i.e., ad libitum) and is often played in very dissonant modes (e.g., F# Flamenco & Ab Flamenco). Guitarist Ramón Montoya (1879-1949) was the first to pave the way for instrumental versions of this style.

 

Por Una Cabeza. Composed by Carlos Gardel (1890-1935, France-Argentina) & performed by Nemanja Bogunovic.

Carlos Gardel was one of the most prominent figures in the history of Argentinian tango composition. Together with lyricist Alfredo Le Perla, Gardel composed and performed an impressive list of tangos including famous pieces like Volver, El Día Que Me Quieras, and Por Una Cabeza. Most of his tangos have been arranged for various instruments in several different genres of music including, for example, classical, flamenco, and jazz.
