Friday concerts are being performed at the Museum of Yucatecan Song in Merida’s Mejorada neighborhood….
For a few weeks the city has a new permanent program of Yucatecan music with the implementation of the “Viernes de Trova” in the Museum of Yucatecan Song, which receives various groups of this genre that share the best of the regional repertoire.
Luis Pérez Sabido, president of the Artistic Society “Ricardo Palmerín”, had the initiative to create this program, since many friends and visitors asked him where they could listen to Yucatecan trova without having to go to a bar.
So he went to the grounds of the Museum of the Yucatecan Song to talk with President Elena Fernandez Moral de Espinosa, considering that it was the ideal place to present a program of music of this genre. The support was immediate: planning began and on June 16 the first “Viernes de Trova” took place.
They are two hours of spectacle, from 8 to 10 pm, in which attendees listen to the trova of the golden age (from the 1920s to the 1940s), the 1950s and the contemporary. Three groups are invited to participate in each edition, and Pérez Sabido himself is in charge of selecting the repertoire.
Attendees can tour the museum before or after the event. It has support of the City Council and Sedeculta. The entrance fee is $100 pesos, which is used to pay artists.
Pérez Sabido announced that this month will begin the construction of the third stage of urns of the Monument to the Creators of the Yucatecan Song in the General Cemetery, with resources of Sedeculta.
In the 60’s, Rómulo Rozo and Carlos Castillo Montes de Oca performed the first stage with 27 urns, where the remains of Ricardo Palmerín, Pepe Domínguez and Guty Cárdenas, among others, were found.
In 2011 the second stage was built with 12 ballot boxes. The third will have another dozen, in which it is planned to place the ashes of Guadalupe Trigo, Ligia Cámara, Josefina Patron Méndez and Roberto Sarlat Corrales.
