The Argentine Guitar Tradition
Walter Clark and Eric Johns, coordinators

Considered the national instrument of Argentina, the guitar is used throughout the country in wide variety of styles. Yet, in the United States we rarely have the opportunity to hear these styles of music apart from the tango. In this lecture-recital, Patricio Crom will guide us through Argentine guitar history and a variety of styles from throughout the nation. From tango to chacarera, classical to zamba, the wealth of guitar music from Argentina speaks for itself.
