Gaitas Navideñas !

Well ... it's NAVIDAD !! which means it's time for GAITAS ZULIANAS ! If you lived in Venezuela and went through the christmas festivities you must have heard the gaitas. The defintion of a "gaitas" according to Wikipedia ...

"The Gaita is the name of a Venezuelan folk music from Maracaibo, Zulia state. According to Joan Corominas, it may come from gaits, the Gothic word for "goat", the skin generally used for the membrane of the furro. It popularized in the middle 60's of the XX century in all the country, and it fused with other types of music like salsa and merengue in the 70's. There are many famous Gaita groups like: Maracaibo 15, Gran Coquivacoa, Barrio Obrero, Cardenales del Éxito, Guaco (when Guaco started was a gaita group, now it's more a salsa group), Koquimba, Melody Gaita, Estrellas del Zulia, Saladillo, and many others."

 So here are some Gaitas I found on YouTube for your enjoyment.

Feliz Navidad y Prospero Año Nuevo !
