The primary recordings of <em>yrlar</em> (tuvan songs) and <em>kozhamyktar</em> (ditties) in the writing sources of scientists contained samples of ancient musical poetry, including images, plots, motifs, and archaic vocabulary. Owing to ethno-cultural values and beliefs of Tuvan people in Southern-Central Siberia it preserved features of relict cultures in music traditions. On the basis of field works conducted in the late 20<sup>th</sup> Century, via ethnographic, historical, and typological principles of systematic approaches to folklore music genres, all songs were divided into occasional rituals and non-occasional songs, according to musical stylistic characteristics folk songs were classified into long songs<em> uzun yrlar</em>, short songs <em>kyska yrlar</em> and traditional ditties <em>kozhamyktar</em>. Tuvan culture is rich with musical traditions, it includes various song types, melodic recitations, instrumental creativity, calendar, and ritual songs, epic genres, etc. The author considers the development of song art as the most mobile layer, which absorbs all from the surrounding sound world. Songwriting reflects the spiritual experience and national character of the Tuvan ethnos.</p> Kira Kyrgys Copyright (c) 2022 Kira Kyrgys Fri, 30 Sep 2022 00:00:00 +0000 Territorial management and harmonization as a public policy instrument for metropolitan areas in the state of Hidalgo, Mexico <p class="p1">The purpose of this article is to analyze the instruments that enable territorial management at the municipal level and the degree to which they are implemented by municipal officials in charge of implementing urban development policies. An interpretative review of the instruments according to the National Census of Municipal Governments and Territorial Districts of the state of Hidalgo, and the application of a questionnaire directed to municipal officials in charge of urban management, was carried out with the reference of a theoretical framework focused on the concept of harmonization aimed at mechanisms directed at public policies aimed at territorial planning. The methodology applied is a documentary review and descriptive statistics to analyze the questionnaires. As a result, it is observed that the officials in charge of urban and land use planning in eight of the 15 municipalities studied do not know the tools required for land management and do not have technical training in urban planning, which limits their ability to apply the instruments in reality. It is concluded that there is limited use of land management mechanisms and a lack of knowledge on the part of public officials in implementing them in their municipalities.</p> Marco Antonio Vera Flores, Sonia Bass Zavala Copyright (c) 2022 Marco Antonio Vera Flores, Sonia Bass Zavala Thu, 29 Sep 2022 17:03:18 +0000 Economic reality of the business sector during COVID-19 in Ecuador, period 2020 <p class="p1">The economic reality of the business sector has been negatively influenced by the COVID-19 pandemic, affecting liquidity, stability, and productivity due to the decrease in domestic demand for goods and services. Therefore, the present research paper aims to analyze the economic reality of the business sector during COVID-19 in Ecuador, period 2020, through bibliographic-documentary research with a quantitative approach, taking as a period for the study the year 2020, with the support of the analytical-synthetic scientific method. As a result, the economy of Ecuadorian companies contracted due to the containment measures implemented by the government to prevent the spread of the COVID-19 virus, causing a decrease in Gross Domestic Product, sales, and jobs, and the rise of online shopping through official digital channels. It is concluded that the economic reality of the business sector in Ecuador has been vulnerable to external economic factors, causing several companies to change or close their activities to stay in the physical and especially digital market, adapting to changes in the environment.</p> Solange Cristina Guerrero Rojas, Luis Angel Calero Salazar, Néstor Daniel Gutiérrez Jaramillo Copyright (c) 2022 Solange Cristina Guerrero Rojas, Luis Angel Calero Salazar, Néstor Daniel Gutiérrez Jaramillo Thu, 29 Sep 2022 00:00:00 +0000 Visual kei: visuality, narratives and textuality in a musical sub-culture <p class="p1">This article seeks to show how narrative, textuality, and visuality are essential elements of a music genre, going to reinforce its style as much as its symbolism and perception. The visual kei genre, a popular music style in Japan, is used in the article. Although it is often considered a style of hard rock or heavy metal, the article will emphasize how the use of narratives (the characterization of performers), visuality (fashion, make-up, coloring, etc.) and textuality (lyrics, symbolism, language) make this genre a true sub-culture. Through hermeneutic analysis and taking phenomena as examples, it will show how music can thus become a form of expression of those people who feel excluded from Popular Culture and find in one of these mentioned elements a way to express their identity. It will then show how the sub-culture is inclusive for those people whose identity is not reflected by Popular Culture.</p> Roberto Fracchia Copyright (c) 2022 Roberto Fracchia Tue, 27 Sep 2022 00:00:00 +0000
