Leo Brouwer - Berceuse (sur un théme de Grenet)

I'm not sure because it's not listed but I think this might be Leo Brouwer playing his own piece.

The notes say that it's a popular song and give a history of it.  I'm no expert but the first time I heard it was on the recording they made of the great Mercedes Sosa singing it in her series of concerts given after the fall of the American backed junta and she could sing in Argentina again.  It was listed as a Cuban lullaby, Druma Negrita

The album notes attributed it to the Cuban cabaret artist, Bola de Nieve.

I'm no expert but that's what I know about it.
