Fiesta! Gets a Bump

Paquito D'Rivera

Paquito D'Rivera

On Sunday, December 15, 2013, WFMT’s Latino music show Fiesta! celebrated its second anniversary in style with Cuban-American Paquito D’Rivera. The eleven-time Grammy Award-winner played to a packed house at Mayne Stage with the Kaia String Quartet, and special guests Larry Grey, Ernie Adams, and Rick Ferguson. The show was broadcast live on WFMT with Fiesta! host Elbio Barilari, and WFMT’s Kerry Frumkin.

Mr. Barilari is co-artistic director of Chicago’s Latino Music Festival. December’s Fiesta! fiesta marked the grand finale to the 2013 festival. On New Year’s day, the concert was broadcast again on NPR’s Toast of the Nation. Listen to the broadcast.
