ARAG–N & VALÈNCIA 'The jota is at its best with the scent of rosemary and fresh-plowed earth,' says the opening song on this CD. An infectious collection of danced and sung jotas, archaic threshing songs, May courting songs, struck zither tunes, raucous shawms and lyrical strings, traveling down from the mountains of Aragón to the fertile coast of València. The Spanish Recordings Alan Lomax made these historic recordings in 1952 while traveling for months through Spanish villages, under formidable physical and political circumstances, during the Franco regime. Covering the breadth of Spain, these songs and dance melodies constitute a portrait of rural Spain's richly varied musical life, dispelling the common stereotypes of Spanish folk music. The Alan Lomax Collection The Alan Lomax Collection anthologizes the American, European and Caribbean field recordings, world music compilations, and ballad operas of writer, folklorist, and ethnomusicologist Alan Lomax. Recorded in 1952 by Alan Lomax.
