In honor of the upcoming Cinco de Mayo celebrations that will take place later this month, this month's free tab is an arrangement of the traditional Mexican folk song "De Colores".   Originally, Cinco de Mayo, or Fifth of May, was to commemorate the Mexican army's 1862 victory over France at the Battle of Puebla during the Franco-Mexican war.  The victory became a symbol of Mexican resistance against imperialism.  Today, however, Cinco de Mayo is actually a much bigger celebration in the United States than it is in Mexico, and has evolved here into a commemoration of Mexican culture and heritage.  Celebrations usually include parades, and traditional Mexican music and folk dancing.

"De Colores" is a traditional folk song that is well known throughout the Spanish speaking world.   It is thought to have been brought to the Americas from Spain in the 16th century, and circulated widely throughout Mexico during the colonial era.   The lyrics speak of the beauty of the natural world, and has since been adopted by the Roman Catholic Cursillo movement and other related communities such as Chrysalis Flight, Tres Dias, and the Walk to Emmaus.   More recently, it has also been used as the unofficial anthem of the United Farm Workers union.

 Here is a link to a YouTube video of this song being performed by American folk singer Joan Baez. 

This is a 2-part arrangement (melody and harmony), so find a playing partner, and work this up for your Cinco de Mayo celebrations!

Wishing you all a Happy Cinco de Mayo!

In music and friendship,

--Tull
