May 18, 2010 - Tuesday Pactica at Bamboo Grove

*This week's featured orchestra is Juan D'Arienzo!*
From 9-10pm we drive through the rhythm with "El Rey de Compás" and explore D'Arienzo's propulsive beat:
  • vocalists Alberto Echagüe & Héctor Mauré
  • looking at D'Arienzo's instrumental (non-vocal) pieces from the early 30s to the 50s
  • searching for for D'Arienzo's signature sound
  • plus a little history...
If you'd like to read about D'Arienzo, see his Bio on
