Way Down South

Los Indios Tabajaras - Polka Paraguaya (from ?)

German influence sunk into Paraguay in the 19th century and created this weird shit. Quite a bit diferent than European Polka. I apologize for lack of information/evidence, but it's beautiful stuff. Like Cumbia, Merengue, ect, there are a bunch of different infusions of the music in modern times. This one is pretty straight up traditional, but I haven't given up the search for some Polka Villera or Polketon.
