Silvio Rodríguez

Biography

The tender balladry offsets the hard-edged, politically slanted lyrics of Silvio Rodriguez. A spearhead from the nueva trova (brand-new ballad) design of nueva cancion (brand-new melody), Rodriguez masterfully mixes romantic music with protest materials condemning colonization as well as the tyranny that swept through Latin America in the past due ’60s and early ’70s. Motivated by French chanson, Rodriguez documented his debut recording in 1976. Although his early albums showcased his single classical guitar playing and silken vocals, Rodriguez progressively integrated the accompaniment of electrical instrumentation. His 1992 recording, Silvio designated his first all-acoustic recording in 14 years. On his recording, Causas con Azares, Rodriguez was associated with the greatly rhythmic noises of Afro-Cuban jazz.
