The Guitar in Latin America with José Manuel Lezcano, Ph.D
October 29 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
José Lezcano presents a multi-media musical program that showcases the guitar in Latin America as an instrument that speaks many languages. Lezcano presents a variety of musical styles: indigenous strummers in ritual festivals from Ecuador, Gaucho music from Argentina, European parlor waltzes from Venezuela, and Afro-Brazilian samba-pagode. He also plays pieces by Villa-Lobos, Brouwer, Lauro, Barrios, Pereira, and examples from his Fulbright-funded research in Ecuador.
This is a Humanities to Go program, made possible by a grant from New Hampshire Humanities.
