In the month of “Chileanness”, the transposed guitar —an unusual way of guitar tuning that has been cultivated over many years in our country— was brought to the fore in its Third Summit, produced by the University of Concepción Cultural Corporation in the UdeC Theater.

In front of a large audience, local singer-songwriters Fabiola González “La Chinganera” and Claudia Melgarejo, with Marisole Valenzuela, Andrea Andreu and Naara Andariega, all of them outstanding exponents of this music genre, came together for a musical and poetic journey of “canto a la rueda” (“round singing”), based on the different tunings of the peasant guitar, with original compositions and an obvious interconnection: the use of the transposed guitar in a personal, avant-garde language.
