Mate: Bauti y Tuli In Argentina, yerba maté is not just a drink, but a way of life. This warm herbal caffeinated beverage is how Argentines wake up in the morning, what they drink on the bus on the way to work, and is always a central reason to meet and socialize with friends and family during merienda (evening tea-time). For hundreds of years, the Guaraní Indians of South America drank maté as a way to mitigate thirst and hunger and to add

vitamins and minerals to their diet. Today, most Argentines of all social classes and backgrounds take part in the matĂŠ tradition, from sunrise to sunset. A person prepares the mate, filling the pumpkin with dry mate leaves and chopped. The cold water is added to the pumpkin and let stand for a moment until the grass absorbs the liquid. Bulb (silver straw with bulbous end and the filter at the bottom) is stuck in the pumpkin at an angle to the hot (not boiling) water is added. Usually he prepares matĂŠ drinks the first pumpkin until dry, to ensure the taste is good and the water is not too hot or cold. The gourd is refilled with warm water and passed to the next person in the circle, drinking cup and goes on to kill the next person without stiring or say thank you (removing obstructions from the chaff, and to thank means that are made to drink yerba mate and skip the next round). This continues around the circle several times until the yerba mate loses flavor and everyone has had their fill. Some people add sugar or milk to mate, but unless the drink is prepared suggesting these additions, it is rude to ask for it, and you'll have to get used to the bitter taste of yerba mate and earthy.

Although Argentina's most well known cultural export is probably the tango, it is by no means the country's only booming dance and music form. Hailing from that northern Argentinean region that is hemmed in by the borders of Uruguay, Brazil, and Paraguay, is another popular song and dance genre: the chamame. It is in this region, amid "Argentina Mesopotamia's" lush and swampy lowlands, that the insouciant chamame thrives. On Argentine: Chamame Musique du Parana the vocal, guitar, and accordion duo of Rudy Flores and Nini Flores knock out 19 enchanting songs. The fraternal Flores duo sings about political parties, card games, exotic birds, and unmarried lovers turn fire serpents with buoyancy and good cheer. The detailed booklet that accompanies the CD credits 16th century Spanish music with the chamame's 6/8 rhythm, the Italian canzioneta with its melodic contours, and the Amerindian Guarani people with its name (in the Guarani language "chamame" refers to something done "lightheartedly, in a rather disorganized fashion"). With a birth that extend back to a ground breaking 1930s recording in a Buenos Aires studio, the chamame has established itself as a vital and ever evolving art form. With Argentine: Chamame - Musique du Parana the Flores brothers help to push the evolving and lighthearted sound of the chamame out of the shadow of the tango and into the ears of audiences around the world.
