CHAMAMECERA/CHAMAMÉ DANCER

Ella está bailando sola,
abrazada a su hombre, él la toma con su mano, pero todo es un sueño.
Él fue a pescar estrellas en su canoa,
y mientras todo duerme
la luna reflejada sobre el río Paraná
salta, transformada en poderoso Dorado.

She's dancing alone
hugging her man, he takes her hand, but it's all a dream.
He went fishing stars in his canoe,
and while everyone sleeps
the moon reflected on the Paraná River
jumps, transformed into powerful Dorado



El Chamamé, es una musica muy alegre, típica de la provincia de Corrientes, en mi país, Argentina. Para bailar Chamamé, el hombre y la mujer están abrazados y mejilla a mejilla. Aquí muestro una foto de los bailarines con sus ropas típicas.
The Chamamé, is a very cheerful music, typical from the province of Corrientes, in my country, Argentina.
To dance Chamamé, man and woman are hugging and cheek to cheek.
Here I show a photo of the dancers with their typical clothes.
                                                                               
                                                               
El  Dorado (Salminus brasiliensis) es un gran pez que puede pesar hasta 25 kilos, aquí les muestro una foto
The Dorado (this means Golden) (Salminus brasiliensis) is a large fish that can weigh up to 25 kilos, here I show a photo

I love the dancing fish and moon, a fantastic idea!
Very dreamful and calm but I feel the music, too. The red is very strong.
And so interesting that you show us the dancers and big fish, thank you.
Your new header is nice: It´s like: oups that´s all? Yes, and that is great!

dear friend i like you telling us some things about Argentina by means of your wonderful work,the moon, the fish, the boat, the flowery background, everything is right on its place, its so very nice to learn something this way, xx

Claire Wildish dijo...

Beautiful poetry and a beautiful painting!! Very dreamy! I especially love the fish dancing!

Anne Manda dijo...

Lovely illustration, warm and interesting and so pretty! LOve the fish and the moon!

Wanda dijo...

Roberto, cuanta belleza y poesia hay en esta serie de la China y la Luna (su rival?)!!!
Un abrazo!

Nancy dijo...

I like your way of dividing the background! How interesting to get to know a little about Argentina - when I first read the poem, I didn't understand a lot of it, but then I scrolled down and got it explained for me ;) ... slightly Yayoi Kusama in the header! :)

Sasa Saastamoinen dijo...

Really really extraordinary: poetic, romantic, dramatic!! Love the idea of a lonely dance and moon and fish embracing... And would love to try Chamamé!

Ted Blackman dijo...

I don't understand it, but I like it anyway.
That fish in the photo is both beautiful and disturbing.

hedwig dijo...

This dream is a happier one, but still someone is missing. I've watched the chamame on YOuTube, it's very beautiful and cheerful ( and cheekful!). The fish looks angry, but his color is great. I'm glad to know he got his golden touch from the moon! The boat filled with stars is magical.

¡Muy buena, Che Roberto! Sobre todo el detalle de las alpargatas...
Abrazos totales.

Nota: Veo que en el futuro, mejor te hago mis comentarios en inglés...

Curupaití, añambuenbueí, tereré, Coyiente' porá.... :) (tanto comentante in inglis me inhibe...jajajajaja) Qué buena ilustración. Me encanta el rojo rabioso. Y sobre todo, la síntesis detalle de la flor de ceibo. Muy buena esta serie, Ro.

celine schroeder dijo...

Thanks for showing some background information! But I like your drawing better: more fantasy, more feeling and a bit sad. Like the woman..again;-))))

Ana M.F. dijo...

me gusta el pez con la luna, parecen ser uno solo pero el pez está a punto de devorarla, es una imagen interesante, como mitológica.
Sì, dejé mi comentario a Celine porqueesa discusión entre que es arte y que no me tiene ya cansada,solo sirve para dividir y etiquetar.
Hay muchos trabajos que se presentan como superiores en las galerìas que no me gustan ni me transmiten nada y cosas que uno puede encontrar inclusive en la calle que dicen mucho más...todos podemos opinar diferente y tener un gusto distinto.
Buen fin de semana también!!

Rod MacGregor dijo...

que grande eres!! Un maestro!!!

Cindy D. dijo...

Beautiful as always! I really love the way you illustrated the poem. Wonderful detail and color!

illustration poetry dijo...

ps: thank youuu, i'm not 100% back though i'm trying to have some fun!

illustration poetry dijo...

a bit afraid the fish could bite me...

Pepa dijo...

Tiene que ser un baile precioso con estas letras!!!
Y ese pez da un miedo terrible....

Venia a desearte unas felices fiestas y mis mejores deseos para el año que pronto comienza.

Un abrazo.

Nice you show some of your inspirations. I like it how the woman is holding her imaginary partner, you can easily dream away with her... and I love her braids and beautiful red dress.

She's not alone, she's not alone!... The transformation of the Moon into Dorado fish is such a powerful image! I like every detail of your drawing, Roberto! And that distant boat, full of stars, caught for the beloved one, breaks my heart!
I wish you once again a magnificent Christmas and an Unforgetable New Year, full of sunshine, stars and love!xx

Beautiful poetry and illustration! One of the reasons i love reading your posts is because I get to know about Argentina but in such a poetic way! :)
Happy holidays and I wish you the best for the new year!
Also, I really wanted to send you a postcard for the new year but i would need your address for it. Would it be okay for me to ask for your address?
