Enlarge this picture! The music of Chalga is a common denominator of musical forms to which an urban listener is exposed to, so the best approach would be to call it “urban folklore”. Recycled tradition – folk music out of context, mainly inspired by traditional music, although not being similar to it. It is not similar, because folk music is only an inspiration: the motifs and melodies may recall the original structures, but the orchestration is out of style, contains heavy influences of jazz and rock, and a great amount of good taste when mixing all the ingredients.
