Asturias, Patria Querida to pieśń, będąca hymnem Asturii.

Hiszpański oryginał tej piosenki powstał najprawdopodobniej w latach ’20., a spopularyzowany został w czasie wojny domowej (1936-1939). Hymn był zakazany w czasach reżimu generała Francisco Franco, czyli aż do roku 1975, podobnie jak wszelkie inne przejawy ruchów narodowo-wyzwoleńczych i regionalnych. Od roku 1984 jest ona oficjalnym hymnem Asturii, czyli Principado de Asturias.
Polskie tłumaczenie hymnu było znaną w latach ’60. i ’70. piosenką patriotyczno-biesiadną, noszące tytuł „Asturia”.

A ta wersja została nagrana w 1954.

Asturias, Patria Querida is the anthem of the Spanish autonomous community of Asturias. This adaptation of a much slower song from the neighbouring lands of Cantabria (Madre, cuando voy a leña) was appointed as official anthem after a contest in Oviedo in the 1890s. It has both a Castilian and an Asturian version. It is also a popular melody for bagpipers.

It has been recently discovered that this song was written in Cuba. The father of the author had returned to his beloved Asturias to die, the author – Ignacio Piñeiro – dedicated the song to his father. The music was different, it is believed to be a melody that Polish miners from the area of Opole Silesia -that worked in Asturian coal mines at the beginning of the 20th century- had brought to Asturias. In fact, the song is still known in Poland, where it was taught as a patriotic song.

Czejand’s Choir was a polish vocal quartet group (1946 – 1962) which sang folk songs, ballads songs, about communism but also jazz standards or rock’n’roll. This group could be much better, almost like western groups but the political system restricted to not sing and perform western kinds of music and songs.
