The profound and expressive voice of Yara Beilinson blended with the rich harmony of the piano transport us to a world of feelings and emotions, representative of popular musical styles from Argentina (the Tango and Folk) fusing folklore tradition with a modern language and Jazz influences.

A concert that aims to promote the richness of unknown Argentinean folklore heritage (Tango, Milonga, Vals, Chacarera, Zamba, Chamamé, etc...) born from the indigenous people of Argentina with African and European influences. The repertoire performed in this concert is a tribute to the most respected and prestigious musicians and composers of Argentina such as Homero Manzi, Aníbal Troilo, Enrique Cadícamo, Cátulo Castillo, Carlos Gardel, Atahualpa Yupanqui, Cuchi Leguizamón, Raúl Carnota, etc...

Tango and Argentinean Folklore. Show "Earth and asphalt"

Since the early colonial conquests, Argentina has undergone a process of "criollización", which contributed to the appearance of American music genres. Contradanza, Quadrilles, Polkas, Seguidillas, Sailors, are fused with black, Inca or Aymara rhythms and dance, resulting in new music genres such as Chacarera, Zamba, Malambo, Milonga and Tango.

All these genres are created and played by the proletariat, the voice of the suburbs, the poor and the destitute and as a consequence the authorities have repressed its origins.

Music of immigrants, farmers, and soldiers reflect in its lyrics loneliness, despair, death and the meaning of life, nature and love. Since 1800 until the present day, there has always been a social inequality between the capital of Argentina and the rest of the country, and this is clearly reflected in their folklore. On one hand the Tango and the Milonga inherent in the city of Buenos Aires and on the other hand the Zamba, Chacarera, Chamamé, Vidala, etc ... coming from the provinces.

One special characteristic of the duo "La Cuarta Justa" as well as the quality of interpretation by it’s members, is that it succeeds in uniting these folklores, (both of its people and its country), showing the wide range of genres and rhythms of traditional Argentinean music, with its own language and without losing its identity.
