Nowadays four languages other than Spanish are spoken in Spain, Galician, Basque, Catalan and Occitan. South America has 37 language families, 448 dialects many of them unclassified. Indigenous languages are spoken by over 11 million people, yet only Quechua in Bolivia, and Guarani in Paraguay have official status along with Spanish. Huayno, a second cousin of Quechua in Peru, and Mapuche in Patagonia have not official status. Reinterpreting songs from centuries old songbooks, musical groups like Luar Na Lubre from Galicia, Kazkabarra from the Basque country, Uchpa from Peru, and among others singers like Joan Manuel Serrat from Cataluna, Duo Quintana Escalante from Paraguay,and Beatriz Pichi Malen from Patagonia, will be presented in Nuestra Musica.
