Music, in addition to art, involves science. Different research methodologies and the interdisciplinary application of social theories and interpretation of facts and results are part of their study. This is what the musicologist and ethnomusicologist Alfredo Colmán (Baylor University), the researcher Simone Krueger-Bridge (John Moores University – Liverpool, United Kingdom) and the professor of musicology Timothy Watkins (Texas Christian University) will share in the last talk tomorrow Tuesday December 6 called: “An approach to Paraguayan music: methods, techniques and perspectives.” In this space, in addition to sharing their research experiences in Paraguayan music, they will enlighten the public about the interactions between music and culture and the appreciation of national creations. With these presentations, the 2022 activities of Jeporeka will be closed.

Music… that auditory space in which the time lived by the creators is reflected, their desires, their affections, the society in which they live and the territory where they develop is the guiding thread of the 2022 meetings of Jeporekaa project led by the award-winning Paraguayan soloist two Latin Grammys, Berta Rojas. This year’s cycle, which included the “A day with…” initiative, closes with the virtual conferences Paraguayan Sounds, which bring together exponents from different sectors to explore aspects of musicality in our country. “The contributions of these figures honor the Jeporeka project, I hope you enjoy it!” said Rojas.


How were the figures of the Paraguayan mestizo, bilingualism and the Paraguayan woman constructed? What are some myths consolidated through historical nationalism and how can we reflect on them? These are some of the questions that were addressed on the first day, led by the researcher Gaya Makaran. In his turn, the Doctor of Music Evandro Higa, who has carried out work on the subject, presented the paper “Paraguayan music in Brazil: processes of appropriation, hybridization and redefinition of musical genres.”

Finally, the musician and orchestral and choral director Nicolas Ramirez Salaberry and the researcher and musician Miguel Antar presented on Sunday 4 fragments of musical pieces developed between 1960 and 1980 in their talk “Wiring new formulas: electrification and experimentalism in Paraguayan music.”

This project was created in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, in 2020. It included various activities such as the creation of the work Pytû Mimbi collectively, which reflected the emotions of the very atypical year that was lived in 2020. In 2021 it evolved into a contest of musical pieces, which was accompanied by teachers such as Popi Spatocco, Juan Quintero, Víctor Heredia, Mónica Salmaso and Lizza Bogado, among others. Now, in 2022, in addition to the virtual talks, it offered the face-to-face session “A day with…”, in which the participants shared knowledge and creative moments with the teacher Jorge Fandermole.
