Traditional (non-modern) Songs/lullabies?

Postby TONY-Nahuatl » 2009-11-03, 18:45

I've come across several songs or lulabies in Nahuatl, however they are all from modern artists/writers. I thought it might be somewhat interesting and beneficial to raise the following questions:

Does anyone have any knowledge of any traditional precolumbian or less modern indigenous songs/lullabies in Nahuatl? Are there any to speak of or have they been lost?

What would an indigenous Nahuatl speaking person 500 years ago have had to sing? What would they have sung to their children?

Actually "Makochi Pitentzin", a song that you probably already heard, which has been performed by several artists, is actually a very traditional lullaby, and I don't think they know who wrote it, it's just common knowledge, but now it has been modernized and recorded in studio.
