      This week, Elbio invites you to a fiesta of the guitar, celebrating a wide range of Latin American guitar music. We explore the thriving crossover of classical style, popular folk and cultural themes. This intersection has a rich history, and continues to produce innovative guitar music to the present day.

        Each selection was elegant and beautiful–the backgrounds of performer, composer, and country, informative and interesting–a most pleasant way to spend my Sunday. Thank you.
