Daniel Alomia Robles Life

Daniel Aloma Robles, born in 1871 and died on July 17, 1942, was a Peruvian composer and ethnomusicologist.

He is best known for writing the song "El Cóndor Pasa" in 1913 as part of a zarzuela, a musical performance in which alternates between spoken and sung parts of the same name.

This song was based on Andean folk songs and is possibly the best known Peruvian song, partially due to the fact that the melody was used by Simon and Garfunkel as their music for "El Cóndor Pasa (If I Could)" in the United States, although the song has different lyrics.

Early life

Daniel Aloma Robles was born in Huánuco, Peru, onätz 3, 1871 to Micaela Robles and Marcial Aloma, a French immigrant.

In an interview in 1942, Aloma Robles said that his first exposure to music came when he was six years old when his mother took him to hear mass in Huánuco and he began to sing along with the chorus. Aloma Robles said he had a keen ear and could make any noise he heard, as well as a child's delight in performing Peru's indigenous songs.

Musical education

In 1882, Aloma Robles attended primary school at La Mineria in Huánuco and then moved with his family to Lima, Peru. Aloma Robles first heard musical theatre while living with an uncle in Lima arrivé at the age of 12.

Lima was brimming with musical theater in the early twentieth century, and many well-known musicians made their home in Lima. Aloma Robles found that the theatre needed extras in the chorus line and took him with himself so he could hear the songs for free and learn the operettas of the period.

Nuestra Seora de Guadalupe, a student at the University of Lima, Aloma Robles. Manuel De la Cruz Panizo and Claudio Rebagliatti encouraged Aloma Robles' early interest in music. If Aloma Robles would assist him in his concerts, Aloma Robles says Rebagliatti took him under his wing and offered to teach him guitar.

Aloma Robles, an 1892 graduate of San Marcos, decided to study medicine at University of San Marcos. He and other students travelled to Amazon jungle regions in order to inspire Aloma Robles' music in his third year. Sala had established a city in the Amazon jungle area that required 400 men and women to work in the fields and build their houses. Sala told his employees that it was not safe to work without resting. He brought the people together at 2:00 p.m. on Sunday to sing and dance.

Aloma Robles left the University in 1894 and dedicate his life to music. Aloma Robles' family, who had encouraged him to study medicine, was against this change of direction.
