Program #2213

Up on this New Sounds, hear Latin American music for guitar and guitar-like instruments from Tex-Mex guitarist Ben Tavera King whose style incorporates elements of flamenco, American Indian music, and dare we say - New Age. Also, works by the late Argentinean folk troubadour Atahualpa Yupanqui. This Latin American world tour of guitar also makes stops in Venezuela, Puerto Rico, and Brazil.
