6 Kinds of Polka?!

We are traveling to South America’s heartland, the country of many polkas… Paraguay!  Handcuffed by many dictatorships and maniacal leaders, this small landlocked republic has had a delayed musical upbringing (no foreign influence permitted between 1954 and 1989).  Yet with the isolation came the developed of their own funky styles, many of which are variations of the polka.  What else do you need to know?!  What if I told you that the harp is the side dish of choice in most Paraguayan folk music?  We’re laying out the goods on this week’s show.. trip well.
