Milonguera by Oscar Escalada. For SATB choir. Latin American Choral Series. Secular, Choral. Grade 5. Octavo. Published by Neil A. Kjos Music Company (KJ.8898).
Milonguera comes from the word milonga, which is a rhythm very close to the tango. The area of the milonga is Buenos Aires, Argentina. Oscar Escalda has built this exuberant work on a rhythmic pattern and its variations. The words are phenomes (nonsense words) created to get just the right effect with the rhythms.
