Hi guys,

I came across this documentary and wanted to share with all of you. From what I can derive in the explanation of the Bajo Quinto, the instrument was very influential in the late 1800's and early 1900's in the region of la Mixteca Baja, Oaxaca. Apparently the Violin and Bajo duo were the life of the parties back then. Acoustically from what I can hear in the documentary, it has the a very similar octave response, but I'll have to get my instrument out to see if the notes and chords match to say that it's tuned exactly the same way.

The conversation about the instrument starts in part two (link below) at minute 4 (but I highly recommend to watch from part 1 and onwards)



It's amazing to see how this instrument influenced so many regions of Mexico and Texas, finding its way from South to North.

Muy interesante jamás hubiera pensado qué en Oaxaca hubiera bajo quintos
Tengo amigos Oaxaqueños y nunca les eh escuchado esa música. Pero pos yo tampoco nunca pongo canción cardenche al menos qué este en mi casa y solo. Pero interesante de todos modos nunca mencionaron cuando se empezaron a hacer los primeros bajo quintos oh no puse atención.

Un placer,

Creo que en el mundo actual los orígenes son solo referencias, porque el desarrollo contemporáneo es basado en la diversidad y la mezcla de grandes contribuciones para hacer que el producto final sea aún mas grande ;o).

Asi como en todo Mexico, actualmente Oaxaca es influenciado por las corrientes de música comerciales (del caribe, sureste y del resto de Mexico), pero quizas tus amigos puedan compartir contigo unas chilenas y canciones de uno de los mas grandes compositores de latinoamérica nacido en Oaxaca, Alvaro Carrillo (compositor de Sabor a mi y Amor mío) ;o).

En el siguiente link, comparten la historia del bajo quinto (predecesor del bajo sexto).

En resumen, el origen de este instrumento es en Oaxaca, después migrando a Morelos y de ahí extendiéndose al norte de la República Mexicana y Texas.
