MUSICAL JOURNEY THROUGH LATIN AMERICA
From the mountains of Mexico to Buenos Aires, Morgan Szymanski´s Musical Journey through Latin America embarks on a Southbound journey from his home in the State of Mexico to Argentina.
Exploring Mexico City where he and Manuel M. Ponce grew up, we then dance onto Cuba with the music of Leo Brouwer. The journey then ventures into Lauro´s Venezuelan waltzes, the pan-pipes of the Bolivian highlands and the jungles of Paraguay where the great guitarist Agustín Barrios´s grew up. Exploring Brazil´s Choros and the indigenous influences in the music of Villa-Lobos´s, the journey draws to an end with the slow and melancholic Milonga before reaching our final destination: the music of Astor Piazzolla and the seasons in Buenos Aires.
