During the first hour we listened to an evening raga performed by sitar master Kushal Das. It was performed live for the Indian Music Society of Minnesota in April 2010. Recording engineer was Mario Vano.
The first ½ hour of this program includes Inti-Illimani, from Chile, and some examples of “copla asturiana”, from Spain. The second ½ hour presents a few Latin American “Tonadas”. The third ½ hour includes music from Puerto Rico and the Dominican Republic. The Spanish language literature segment is dedicated to the Mexican writer Carlos Fuentes with the reading, in his own voice, of a small fragment of “Cristobal Nonato”.
