Bolivian Music for Guitar Quartet (Score & Parts)
Composer: Claure, Willy
Willy Claure was born on October 12th, 1962, in the city of Cochabamba (Bolivia)."Taquirari" is a Bolivian folk dance. "Cueca" is a family of musical styles and associated dances from Argentina, Chile (where it holds the status of National Dance), and Bolivia. It has the nature of a courtship dance, and is performed by a man and a woman in specific dress, each holding a handkerchief. These are waved in various ways as the dance progresses. The affair opens with the gentleman offering the lady his arm; they proceed to promenade around the room, then separate to opposite ends of the room. The dance proper then commences, in which, though the couple may come very close, and flirtations may seem to be enacted, the two never touch.
