Way OT - Music lovers

I’ve been doing some work for WGBH helping to get the word out about a great documentary film on the influence of Latin music, Latin Music USA. The Globe said some nice things about it:

The first two parts are on Monday, parts 3 and 4 the following week.

We’ve been posting a lot of great music to the Facebook fan page (http://www.facebook.com/PBSLatinMusicUSA) and Twitter (http://twitter.com/LatinMusicUSA), if you’re interested.

Doing this work reminded me of catching Los Lobos at the Chestnut Cabaret in Philly in 1985 on the recommendation of the Inquirer music critic, they blew the doors off the place. Lots of amazing music in this film.

Los Lobos might be one of the best guitar driven bands there is. David Hidalgo is an amazing player. If you have never seen “the wolf” I can’t recommend them enough.
