¡Gracias, Roberto!

See if this works:

Is this the correct title? "La Entradilla de Nava"

And this one: "Alborada de Tierra de Campos"

Roberto: so, are these traditional dance tunes normally played by estudiantina groups—is that the right term for those groups made up of bandurrias and lautos?

Yes, these are traditional dance tunes, but not from plectrum instruments. I mostly play tune from Dulzaina, a traditional double reed instrument, kinda like a "high oboe"...

Nice, Roberto. With that instrumentation it almost sounds like a Norteño tune. Obviously a polka, but what is the name of it?

It's a "pasacalles", same 2/4 time as polka, but with different accent. It's called Pasacalles de Galve, because it's from a small village called Galve.

Thanks. Do you learn these by ear or by notation. Are there traditional recordings?

There are transcriptions of these pieces, but I like to learn them by ear to catch the tricks and the pulse of the players.
