THE CANARY MUSIC.
THE ROOTS OF THE CANARY MUSIC.
For their geographical location and for their history, our islands have received influences so varied that a very peculiar style is recognized in their folklore. The customs of the original inhabitants of the Canary Islands who were living on these lands before the conquest, joined the culture and the influences: Iberian as well as American. The music has a very important role for the Canary people.
The remains of the aborigines make us think that they practically did not use any instruments. They did music by singing and accompanying with corporal percussion of feet and hands. They used the music with songs as a part of their rituals: to beg for rain, the shouting on having begun a battle, the funeral laments.....
The “timple” is the most typical instrument of the Canary music. It is the smallest instrument of the family of the guitars; with sharp sound, as of "soprano" in the human voice.
It is made by combining special wood as the barbusano, the pine or the mulberry tree.
It can have five strings, though in the island of Tenerife they play the “timple” with four strings.
Formerly the strings were done of gut of animal. Now, they are done of “tanza” , fishing rope, that’s nylon.
Inseparable protagonist of the sprees, the “timple” has been defined as " The sound of the Canaries ".
Nowadays there are “ timples” craftsmen (luthiers) that continue the tradition of their grandparents. Also, there are famous soloartists of “timple” that have taken the instrument to concert halls of many countries of the world, close to big orchestras of international renown and gave it the category of symphonic instrument.
THE ORIGINS OF THE CANARY DANCE.
The Canary dance has a clear peninsular influence, though some of our dances come from the tradition folklore from former inhabitants.
The last aboriginal dance which we still witness persisted with some changes up to the 19th century. Some of its characteristics are in the dance of the “sirinoque” , traditional of the island of La Palma.
Thanks to the archaeological discoveries we can know something more about the primitive Canary dances. In the ravine of Balos and “ Guayadeque” (Gran Canaria) they have found prehistoric engravings that represent positions of dance.
