Costa Rica: a typical Folklore of Guanacaste!

In this month of the Independence I would like to share some typical music of my country: Costa Rica.

The "Punto Guancasteco" was born in the 1830s in Guanacaste as the name shows. This rhythms is more than a hundred years, and runs through the veins and the musical taste of Guanacaste and the rest of the country. This point rhythm (parrandera) is an authentic Costa Rican rhythm born in the provience of Guanacaste. In the musical field, it is the particular seal of Guanacaste, that unites and identifies the people of Guanacaste. It was in 1944 in the Government of Don Teodoro Picado it was made official as the National Dance of Costa Rica.

Normally, they do pauses and people rowdy, here it goes one:


La pluma sin tinta no puede escribir,

y yo sin tu amor no puedo vivir,

Ujujuyuy bajura

Have a wonderful day!
