De vuelta a la música      Volta Hei de Amar-te

It was June 1986, an intimate corner in one of the most ancient neighbourhoods in Guadalajara, San Juan de Dios, secretly enclosed the first chapter of what would be the history of some children who, with yet nothing to tell, were starting in the musical stave world at the music school, the classrooms of what once had been the Hospicio Cabañas (Cabañas Orphanage) in which, for the first time, those young music students heard, played, and were seduced by foregone sounds enchantments, the rhythms and melodies of the ancient music, the one written in the Middle Ages.


The story continued and, though it complied with the various protagonists’ chapters, Volta, as they had decided to name that group of so musically talented children, was never silent.  Until now, two decades after their birth, with the maturity of its members and with the Música antiqua sounds and interpretations, Volta celebrates in the best possible way: perpetuating those notes pertaining to the Renaissance, to the Viceroyalty, to the Middle Ages and to all those bygone times by means of its own perspective and feeling, through its very personal way of boarding time and the art of music.

This story called Volta, whose inspirational lines were written during the time where maidens and knights, castles and jesters, buffoons and troubadours, as well as love and land conquests existed, has also been part of the life of many who have written their names and surnames in this recount…  Voices, hands, thoughts and breaths which have allowed the telling of a story that starts to abandon its very early youth to take the first steps into a quite fresh maturity.  Those who teach and create as Marcela Orozco, Laura Orozco, Horacio Franco, Nacho Vázquez, Emilia Orozco and Laura Avalos are in our memory, as well as interpreters and musicians like Cesar Ortega +, Mariana Flores, Darío Flores, Susana Carvajal, Flor Briseño,  Karla Carrillo, Gregorio Rodríguez, Felipe Díaz, Girasol Sexton, Francisco Ramos, Frania Mayorquín, Jorge Cevallos, Mariana España, Rolando Esquivel, Raúl Banderas, Rosy Martinez, Maribel Sigala, Max Torres, Mauricio Ortega, Paoli Franco, Jessica Krichels, Mireya Ruvalcaba y Ricardo Lavín.  To all of them, and in the name of those who now keep the Volta beat alive, thank you for appearing in some fragment of this mid-life reflection.

As well as names, Volta has motionless witnesses of its art: ramparts, cupolas and pavements through which the music of praising chants, the felicitous dances, prose and verse allegories, loving proposals and existential pleas, are all present by means of being voiced and given breath by the Tapatian Ensemble.  It would be important to name each stage, but we mention only a few, and this will have to remain as a modest sample of our walking as Volta through Mexico’s colonial cities, the festivities of its native land, Guadalajara, and recently abroad walking on some mysterious corers of that immense South American country, Brazil, where this group scored its participation in the fifteenth edition of the International Festival of Brazilian Colonial Music and Musica Antiqua. 

Today, Volta is just that, the result of a well written prelude, of a project for the little ones, though not for that a small project, but quite the opposite.  In its fifteen years, Volta is the firm building of a splendid foundation that, since that now distant June ’86, had just the right people to infuse a  soul to one of the Antique Music Ensembles that have given life to this genre in the city of Guadalajara.  The return to before yesterday’s music was boarded by kids who now complete their musical formation, because this is a never-ending task.  Volta is now the result of the art, delivery and musical discipline of Violet, Lucia, Marian, Carmen, Angelica, Vladimir, Jorge, Luis and Rigor.  Some are new in this episode; others, protagonists of a life with two recordings, hundreds of stage presentations and twenty years the better.      

A tutu Genet in Volta, but above all to those of you who have in this moment given music to this material, the strongest of my cries, the soundest of my applause, and my voice in gratitude for having allowed me now to be part of your story.
