Ana Veydó discusses how women have changed the face of música llanera

In the plains of eastern Colombia, men have long sung to accompany their tasks of herding and milking cows. Consequently, m?sica llanera (plains music) has a masculine character, and its themes draw from the male-dominated cattle-herding lifestyle. Yet today, one of the most renowned m?sica llanera singers is a woman: Ana Veyd?. Veyd? is one of the few female singers that follow the recio (robust, coarse) style of joropo singing usually associated with the male voice. Here Veyd? discusses the influence of feminine voices in m?sica llanera. [Catalog No. - CFV10044; Copyright - 2006 Smithsonian Institution]
