Vals Venezolano No. 3 (waltz). Composed by Antonio Lauro and performed by Ana Vidovic. performed by Ana Vidovic. This waltz is part of Lauro's "4 Valses Venezolanos" and, along with Vals No. 2 (which I shared here before), is one of Lauro's most famous works. This is a short, but very advanced piece (level 2-3) that has a very memorable melody, tons of counterpoint and is very fun to play!

Barrio la Viña (alegrias). Composed and performed by Paco de Lucía. The flamenco style of alegrias belongs to the cantiñasrhythmic and harmonic family. These styles all have 12 beats and typically written in major keys. That said, the dance version of the alegria style includes a minor section called a “silencio” and Paco de Lucia composed this piece using both major and minor keys. The origins of the alegria lie in the rhythm of the soleá and the vocal melody of the Spanish folkloric jota from Aragón. It was developed around 1866 as a dance, voice and guitar form meant to contrast the dark and melancholic tone of the soleá.
