Crossover Dreams: Latin Music in America on American Routes – Today at Noon

Oct 5, 2018

We’ll sample the sabor latino in American music. Join us for conversation with Los Lobos on their mix of American pop and Mexican traditions. We’ll visit Los Cenzontles, a community arts center in San Francisco dedicated to the teaching of Mexican music, and drop by a Philadelphia radio show spinning salsa hits for the neighborhood. Then, we’ll sit in with pianist and bandleader Oscar Hernández of the Spanish Harlem Orchestra for some Nuyorican beats and salsa moves. Plus a special performance by San Antonio's queen of the conjunto accordion, Eva Ybarra.

American Routes can be heard Fridays at noon on KRCB-FM Radio 91 / streaming @ norcalpublicmedia.org  / Comcast channel 961 throughout the Bay Area / Download the FREE KRCB App @ iTunes & Google Play!
