VALLENATO

Vallenato comes from Colombia's northern coast . The name is derivated from "Valledupar", the city where it became popular. The name of this city comes from Valle de Upar (Valle = Valley, Upar = An indian chief).
The origins of vallenato are:
-The folkloric Cumbia, using only percussion (Alegre, llamador, bombo, guache, maracas de totumo) and the rustical "Gaita" flutes (not to be translated as bagpipe!) of the Aruaco Indians from the Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta but used mainly in the Departamentos Bolivar, Sucre and Córdoba, and the "Flauta de Millo" used mainly in Soledad and Barranquilla.
- Later, the "música sabanera", with guitars.
Originally, Vallenato was played using only accordion, guacharaca (something like the güiro but made of the boughs of the corozo palm, also called corojo), caja vallenata (a drum, a little bigger than a bongo using an x-ray sheet instead of the leather pad) and vocals.
Today Vallenato bands are as big as Salsa orchestras, and include additionally congas, timbales, electric guitar, electric bass, a metal güira instead of the guacharaca, and a bg. vocals section. Sometimes a drumset and synthesizers are present to, but there is a polemic about bands of this kind that perform sometimes a style known through Carlos Vives as Vallenato-Pop.
Nevertheless Carlos Vives has made a big contribution to the diffusion of Vallenato over the world.
Some musicians and composers of the olden times are: Enrique Díaz, Leandro Díaz, Francisco El Hombre, Alejo Duran, Emiliano Zuleta, Rafael Escalona, Morales or Boveda for example.
Contemporary but original Vallenato is performed by artists like Diomedes Diaz, Los Hermanos Zuleta, Lisandro Meza, Jorge Oñate, Iván Villazon, Los Betos, El Binomio de Oro, Rafael Santos... (see links below).

Der Begriff "Vallenato" bedeutet vom Tal. (Tal= Valle) ... weil diese Stilrichtung in der Stadt Valledupar bekannt geworden ist, deren Name sich wiederrum aus den Wörtern "Valle de Upar" zusammensetzt = Tal von "Upar" (ein Indianerhäuptling).
Die Entwicklung des Vallenatos ist aber komplizierter. Es entstand aus der "música sabanera". In dem von Valledupar mehr oder weniger entfernten Departamento  (Provinz/Bundesland) "Bolivar" wurde diese hauptsächlich gepflegt und war eine Mischung aus Cumbia Rythmen mit Gitarren.
Wie es bei der Musik so ist, wanderte diese Stilrichtung an der Küste entlang über den departamento "Atlántico" (Haupstadt Barranquilla) bis zu den departamentos "Magdalena" (haupstadt Santa Marta), "Guajira" (Hauptstadt Riohacha) und "Cesár" (Haupstadt Valledupar). Erst hier kam vermutlich der von den damals vielen in der Region niedergelassenen Europäer mitgebrachte Akkordeon zum Einsatz.
Im traditionellem Vallenato wird der Gesang nur von Caja (Trommel, etwa doppel so groß wie ein Bongó, deren Fell aus einer Röntgen Aufnahmeplatte besteht), Guacharaca (Instrument aus einem Ast der Corozo-Palme (auch Corojo genannt) mit Schlitzen, vom prinzip her wie Güiro) und Knopf-Akkordeon begleitet.
Heutzutage wird es aber hauptsächlich von großen Bands Vermarktet, die zusätzlich noch Timbales, Congas, E-Gitarre, und E-Bass benutzen. Die Guacharaca wird durch die lautere Merengue Güira ersetzt und statt Knopf Akkordeon wird manchmal ein Schiffer Klavier benutzt. Zudem gibt es auch eine umstrittene Welle durch Carlos Vives als Vallenato-Pop bekannt geworden, bei der auch noch Synthesizer, Schlagzeug und manchmal sogar Drum-Computer, Sampler und Sequenzer zum Einsatz kommen. Trotz dieser Polemik darf man seinen Beitrag zur Verbreitung des Vallenatos nicht vergessen.
Einige Urväter des Vallenatos sind z.B.: Enrique Díaz, Leandro Díaz, "Pacho" Rada ("Francisco El Hombre"), Alejo Duran, Emiliano Zuleta, Rafael Escalona, Morales oder Boveda.
Hörempfehlungen für den original Vallenato der Gegenwart : Diomedes Díaz, Los Hermanos Zuleta, El Binomio de Oro, Lisandro Meza, Jorge Oñate, Los Betos, Iván Villazón, Rafael Santos... (siehe links unten).
