GUERRERO, Juliana. The Cantata: the Crossing between the Learned and the Popular. Rev. music. chil. [online]. 2013, vol.67, n.220, pp.94-106. ISSN 0716-2790.

This document discusses two South American cantatas composed during the 1960s, the Cantata Laxatón by the Argentine group Les Luthiers (1965) and the Cantata Santa María de Iquique by the Chilean composer Luis Advis (1969). Both are examples of new music that appealed to audiences by means of different resources. This article seeks to review the concept of "musical genre" as a tool that can be employed to account for the communicative potential and the contents of these two works. The hypothesis is that both cantatas animate the concept of genre by employing humor, parody, and political criticism, and by incorporating elements of art and popular music.

Palabras clave : cantata; Les Luthiers; Luis Advis; Musical genre; the sixties.
