      Esta Tierra Es Mi Tierra: Latino Composers Reflect on the American Experience

      Listen to the Program

      Both, US born Latino composers and composers that migrated from Latin America have written music reflecting the American experience in all its nuances.  On this episode of Fiesta, we will share music about the immigrants’ journey and life in the United States. And our host, Elbio Barilari, will speak about his own experiences coming to America as well as other Latino composers who have made the US their home.  Come celebrate Independence Day with us… Latino style!
