Luna tucumana: A Beautiful Song for Piano Lovers

If you are looking for a new challenge on the piano, you might want to try Luna tucumana, a popular folk song from Argentina. Luna tucumana, which means "moon of Tucumán", is a zamba composed by the legendary singer-songwriter Atahualpa Yupanqui in 1940. The song is a tribute to the province of Tucumán, where Yupanqui spent some time in his youth. The lyrics express the nostalgia and admiration for the land and its people, as well as the beauty of the moon that shines over the mountains.

The zamba is characterized by a 6/8 meter with syncopated accents and a distinctive guitar strumming technique.
