Enregistrement: Guernavaca (Mexique)


Classical Nahuatl: Cuauhnāhuac /kʷawˈnaːwak/ "near the woods") is the capital and largest city of the state of Morelos in Mexico. It was established by the Olmec, "the mother culture" of Mesoamerica, approximately 3200 years ago and is designated as the archaeological site of Gualupita I . The city is located south of Mexico City, from which it may be reached after a drive of approximately thirty minutes using the D-95 Freeway.

The city was nicknamed the "City of Eternal Spring" by Alexander von Humboldt in the nineteenth century. It has long been a favorite escape for Mexico City and foreign visitors because of this warm, stable climate and abundant vegetation. Aztec emperors had summer residences there, and today many famous people as well as Mexico City residents maintain homes there. Considering its location of just a 30 minutes drive from Mexico City, Cuernavaca traditionally has been a center of Mexican society and glamour, with many of the country's wealthy citizens owning sprawling mansions and haciendas in this cultural haven. Cuernavaca is also host to a large foreign resident population, including large numbers of students who come to study the Spanish language.

The name "Cuernavaca" is derived from the Nahuatl phrase "Cuauhnāhuac" and means "surrounded by or close to trees". The name eventually was Hispanicized to Cuernavaca. The coat-of-arms of the municipality is based on the pre-Columbian pictograph emblem of the city which depicts a tree trunk (cuahuitl) with three branches, with foliage, and four roots colored red. There is a cut in the trunk in the form of a mouth, from which emerges a speech scroll, probably representing the language Nahuatl and by extension the locative suffix "-nāhuac", meaning "near".


I would love to dedicate this post to this lovely (right now sleeping) blog


Dear Monsieur Gérard Krémer,

thank you for sharing so much fantastic music with us! Please next time you go out recording other peoples music "in the field" don't forget to take your little booklet with you, the one, were you write down the names of the musicans, the instruments and all these things we so easily forget.
And please give the record company a copy of these notes. We would love to see them in the booklet and the artists would love to receive some money from the sale... you know copyright and all that stuff... anyhow it is just fair isn't it.
But again  thank you for your great work. It is a shame I could not find any info about you, your travels and work on the internet...
Hopefully you'll find these notebooks one day... and let us know :-)

Yours sincerely
