Description
Musically, the borders of the Americas are open. We salute the New World, the Western Hemisphere, and its vivacious musical heritage and present-day creative vitality. From Canada and the United States, through Mexico and the Caribbean to Brazil and Argentina, we find the often exuberant and sometimes sleepy sounds of new found lands.
