Guitarist/composer Eric Carbonara creates lyrical pieces that bob and weave around stylistic borders, drawing lines of connection between Andalusian Roma-Flamenco, Hindustani, North African, and North American influences to form a kind of exalted pidgin style of playing that covers a wide emotional terrain from meditative calm to restless intensity. Carbonara joins host David Garland in the WNYC Studio to talk about and perform his music.
