In celebration of International Women’s Day, all of the music played during the first hour is interpreted by Latin American women. The last ½ hour includes some examples of the Mexican regional genre “Son Huasteco” with “Los Camperos de Valles” and the last 9 minutes consist of a short story (“Don Chico que vuela”) by the Mexican writer Eraclio Zepeda, read by the author himself.
Amig@s, unfortunately the recording program of today’s show didn’t set one hour ahead its clock. The first 30 minutes of the recording on this page are the last 30 minutes of today’s “Encuentro”.
The first 60 minutes of today’s “Encuentro” can be found in the last 60 minutes of the recording of the preceding program:http://www.kfai.org/node/26688
The first ½ hour of this program consists of a small retrospective of the puertorriqueño composer Rafael Hernández, “El Jibarito,” (1891-1965). The second ½ hour presents two folk Argentinean genres: “Malambo” and “Chacarera”. The last ½ hour includes music from Uruguay and the last 12 minutes contain the reading of a few texts by the Uruguayan writer Eduardo Galeano.
The first 20 minutes consist of Nicaraguan music. The rest of the first hour is used to explore the connection Mexico-Ireland, mainly through the CD “San Patricio”, produced by Ry Cooder and Paddy Moloney (from “The Chieftains”) and issued just a few days ago. The last ½ hour includes Mexican music and the last 7 minutes have the reading of a small fragment from “Pedro Páramo” read by the author himself, Juan Rulfo.
