Twelve Days of Christmas - Day 10

Updated: Jan 4

I first heard Cancion de Cuna on the radio driving home from a friend's house this past Winter Solstice. It was an absolutely magical moment that I will never forget. It was a clear, cold night, the stars were out and the colorful holiday lights on the houses glittered peacefully.

Composed by Eliseo Grenet Sanchez and titled Drume Negrito, it was later arranged for solo guitar by Leo Brouwer, who then titled it Cancion de Cuna, but you will sometimes hear it called Berceuse or African Lullaby.
