Lynn Darroch’s narratives about musicians, authors, school teachers and immigrant children are set to music performed live and arranged by guitarist Alfredo Muro — an internationally touring master of multiple Latin styles – and, on their recent CD, accompanied by percussionist Dave Fischer.
These lively stories present well-known artists — such as the salsa star/actor Ruben Blades and Cuban guitarist Eliades Ochoa — as well as ordinary people in carefully arranged performances featuring music of the culture to which the subject belongs, including Afro-Peruvian, Brazilian, Mexican and Afro-Cuban styles.
You’ll also hear biographical and cultural information in addition to dramatic interactions with the subjects.
