instruments: 4 guitars (bass ad libitum)
„La Paloma“ for 4 Guitars (plus Bass ad lib.) - the song “La Paloma” was originally penned by the Spanish composer Sebastián de Yradier (1809 – 1865). This world-wide renowned melody tends to be accompanied by all sorts of differing song-texts, which (for instance in Germany) are more than often not related to seafaring at all. “La Paloma” itself translates to “the Pigeon” or “the Dove”. It is a nostalgic song with a multitude of meanings, in which both a yearning for love can be felt within the song as well as the craving for freedom and fairness.
