El Milagroso — a Song by Micaela Chauque

Micaela Chauque is a revered modern Andean musician and composer from Argentina. Her joyful song “El Milagroso,” which means “the miraculous” in English, is a beautiful example of traditional instrumental Andean music — one of the remnants of the cultures of the area who are descendants of the lost civilization of the sun in South America, where reverence for the spiritual sun was deeply rooted.

Below is a lively performance of “El Milagroso,” highlighting the simple joy this kind of music can evoke:

For a more polished version, here is Micaela Chauque’s official music video for this song:

  • I love this music – it’s uplifting and upbeat and it seems to be the only type of music my friends and family enjoy too and won’t complain about (versus classical music) whenever they visit. Thanks for sharing!

  • This is just so undeniably cheerful! Like it could penetrate the darkest cloud with a beam of sunlight, or into the heart of the darkest mood with its joy. Thanks for posting, I really like the two videos for very different reasons also – the intimate sense of being in that small room and the atmosphere generated by the musicians, and then the music in the context of the epic mountain landscape that it was born from … (or gave birth to?) 😉

    • I love that image, Ella. Like sunlight through a dark cloud, and it really feels like that! It’s amazing, the power music can have.

  • There seems to be quite a special energy and feeling to the music from the Andes. Like it’s describing and talking about something that’s out of sight. It makes me long for something deeper, a better connection to spiritual things, listening to her music, also watching her, as there seems to be a kind of strength to it and I love the look in her eyes – serene but inspired and uplifted.

    • I was thinking the same Jon; how this song was a fine example of the best Andean music. Very nice to see such a skillful female musician too, I don’t think I have seen any before as these instruments seem to be played mainly by men today.

  • This music is so beautiful and uplifting, thank you for sharing.
    I wonder how a place, specific kinds of nature and animals can affect the music that is created. And if all living things have a music in them that can be heard in some way…if you listen closely enough?

  • Thank you for posting this as I have wanted to make a comment on her music since discovering her on the Resource page.

    Her music is so lively and joyful and she plays with such skill.

    I am Chilean and used to love listening to Andes music when I lived there. When you visit the Andes ranges you feel something very special – they are imposing and sublime.

    I can totally understand why people create this kind of music, they are inspiring.

    Thanks again, Jenny!

  • This one, along with the other South American tunes featured on the resources page, have been the ones I felt drawn to to listen in the evenings the last few months. I think it’s the upbeat-ness, and warmth of this style of music in general, which made it a good counter or remedy to the cold of winter and mechanicalness every city life can take on. Then a listen to a song like this, especially the live version, can be a good ‘injection’ of summer-y warmth and do so much for your mood.

    I was listening to this today with some children, which I think can be a good measure to the nature of music, and they seemed to enjoy it. It also made me pay more attention and one thing I noticed was that the instrument type itself, the sound of it, seemed to be spiritual in itself. Producing a very pure and characterstic kind of sound.

    I wonder what types of music and distinctly unique styles and instruments were present in more ancient civilisations that have become lost.

    Definitely a good addition to the resource page this one!
