We practice with live music!

In this part of the workshop, we will have special guests Manuel Navarro on Guitar and Santiago Alvarez on Chromatic Harmonica in charge of live music.
According to what we worked on at the beginning of the workshop, we will create an arrangement of bombo legüero to accompany a cueca norteña and a chacarera. We will each work within our own possibilities to make music together.
