En Casa: Yuri Juárez (Facebook)
Peruvian guitarist Yuri Juárez is back this week with Carlos Gamarra’s “El Parisién,” one of the foundational pieces of the Peruvian waltz genre. We all wish we could travel right now, and this song (although Yuri does a beautiful instrumental version) takes us to Paris, the City of Love.

Guatemalan violinist Sergio Reyes and Argentine pianist Emilio Teubal are the members of Romancero Latinoamericano Duo, with which they recreate the greatest classics of the region. From their homes in New York City, they sent us their take on Ángel Villoldo’s tango “El Choclo.”

Recuerdos: Flamenco Vivo Carlota Santana (Facebook)
Carlota Santana’s adventurous flamenco group was on our stage a few years ago with a program of amazing Flamenco-Latin American musical fusion. We remember their visit with their first piece, the classic “La pollera colorá.”

En Casa: Clarice Assad (Facebook)
Multi-talented Brazilian artist Clarice Assad and her music have graced on our stage several times over the past seasons. From her home in Chicago, she sent us her version of Claude Debussy’s “Doctor Gradus Ad Parnassum,” which departs from the original in delightful ways.
