Fiest host Elbio Barilari checks the mailbox for the most recent recordings submitted to the show.  We'll hear what he found on the June 4th broadcast.

6/4        Music in the Mailbox We are constantly getting fresh recordings of Latin American music from all over the world. On this program we will share some of the most interesting, fresh and colorful music we have received in the mail.

6/11      The French Connection Take an intercontinental journey with Fiesta as Elbio explores the cultural and musical influence of French culture on Latin American Music.  From Venezuelan composer Teresa Carreno to the heart of Brazilian art music with Heitor Villa-Lobos.  Join us for a 100-year tour of this fascinating cultural intersection.

6/18      Baroque Music from the Americas The music written and performed in Latin America during the Colonial period (16th to early 19th centuries) has become more popular in recent years. However, even before those treasures were rediscovered, several composers from the region showed their interest in exploring the strong connections between Spanish (and European) music from the past and Latin American music, expressed also in the multiple similarities with early and baroque music one can find in Latin American folk music.

6/25      Flamenco Music Spanish flamenco music has a rich tradition of blending the music from such diverse backgrounds as India, the Arab world, and the gypsies.  In this hour we feature the many paths of flamenco from the pop world to the concert hall.
