List of genres


The collected repertory can be searched according to a classification of musical genres in three general groups:
a) “canto” (vocal works);
b) “canto y baile” (vocal works with dancing); and
c) “instrumental music".
Since 2015 we have added the category (not a genre) "Violencia de género" and we have marked with a purple ribbon in our catalogue those pieces of oral tradition which have a text particularly violent against women. In this way, we want to call attention to the problem of violence against women in today's society and to facilitate research about it in connection with the transmission of traditional music. We have also added at the beginning of the list, "Descripción de costumbres/fiestas populares/juegos", to signal those pieces particularly rich in comments about the performance context of a work; since we have added this category recently, there are many other pieces with rich comments which have not been labeled yet with this category.
