Program #2079

New Music from Spain highlights this edition of New Sounds. While flamenco defines the cultural spirit of this country, there is far more to Spanish music. Cádiz-born guitarist Suso Saiz is among the most versatile of today's Spanish artists with roots in jazz, pop, and avant-garde styles. We'll hear selections from his 1991 CD, Simbolos. The three-member group Radio Tarifa draws on a mosaic of Iberian cultures, including African and Arabic percussion. Also on tap is music by flamenco guitarist Juan Martin (pictured right), and a New Sounds Live performance by Virginia Luque, a protégé of Andres Segovia whose career has been fast on the rise.
