Please join us for a presentation by Ecuadorian guitarist Terry Pazmino next Friday, October 10th at 4:00 p.m. in The Gallery of the W.T. Young Library on the UK campus.
Terry Pazmiño is a classical guitarist and composer from Quito, Ecuador who, in addition to performing, researches, writes, and lectures on the popular and classical music traditions of Latin America. In his youth he mastered the forms of popular Ecuadorian music such as the sanjuanito, pasillo, danza and subsequently went abroad to study classical guitar with three Latin American masters of the instrument: Antonio Lauro, Alirio Díaz, and Alberto Ponce. Mr. Pazmiño studied in Sydney, Austrailia where he took an advanced degree and wrote on the popular South American music tradition. Many of his own compositions derive from Quichua and Spanish music of the Andes.
This event is sponsored by the UK Latin American Student Organization, Kentucky-Ecuador Partners, and the UK Office of International Affairs.
