Canto Negro, trip of Latin American Art Songs

In the picture soprano Mariela Añazco.

At the end of the 19th century, Latin American composers sought and found a unique sound by setting poems by their poets to music. Latin American composers were writing in a socio-cultural context being shaped by profoundly nationalistic social trends and a fertile musical renaissance was spread throughout the Americas.

The heart of the Latin American Art Song repertoire was written from the end of the 19th century to about the middle of the 20th. The origins of the genre originated from 19th century Germany where composers such as Schubert and Schuman were writing lieder (lit. song) for piano and solo voice.
