El Día De La Xibarte

The day of the humpback whale

Composed by the late Elías García of Llan de Cubel. Musician extraordinaire.
Transcribed from their latest album "La lluz encesa"

From the sleeve notes:
This tune is a "xiringüelu" (another name for an Asturian reel) dedicated to those rare days when not one but two truly amazing things happen.

They play in in Eb, I’ve transposed it to D. First tune of the 4th track.

Where is Asturias ie what part of Spain? Good fun, but it takes quite a while to play with the repeats (for me as a not very good fiddler…)

Re: El Día De La Xibarte

In memory of Elias Garcia who has passed away recently. The Asturian folk music has lost one of their best musicians and a good man.

Muy grande Elías. Great musician and definitely a good man. Good man indeed.
