I'm not sure if this counts as contemporary or early music. It's a song from Mexico which has origins in colonial times but is nowadays mostly played by son jarocho groups. Anyway, here's my take on this song, played on my requinto.

Please note!: This is a traditional song and therefore out of any copyrights. I hope this is now within the rules. :)

Thanks for sharing your take on this song. I'm not familiar with it but it seems like a nice catchy tune.

B.t.w. what is a requinto? To me it sounds half like a guitar and half like a ukulele (I mean that in a good way as I quite like the sound of a ukulele).

Basically the requinto is a slightly smaller guitar; the most common tuning is A D G C E A (the common ukulele tuning is G C E A (high or low G).

Very pretty piece of music. I'm glad to have heard it. It sounds more like música folclórica which I guess is, in a sense, always "contemporary." I'm glad I don't have the responsibility of categorizing these things!
