Music is universal; however, depending on the region of the world music can have different rhythms, beats, tempos, lyrics, or styles. Headwaters Music and Arts hosts A Review of Latin American Music with Antonio Arce on Saturday, April 1 at 7pm. Community adults are invited to join musician and educator Antonio to learn about the different music of Latin America as he shares his knowledge in this free presentation. The audience will experience different songs and short stories, view a variety of photos of the area where the songs originated, and listen to the music of Latin America as performed by Antonio.
Antonio is a singer and guitarist. He was born in Salta, Argentina as the eldest son of a professional musician who always had guitars at home. Learning guitar started as a practice but quickly formed into an obsession. Although Antonio picked up the guitar very quickly he did not learn the names of the chords or the notes in either Spanish or English. Instead, Antonio learned to play by ear something he still practices with his main repertoire of Música “Latino Americana” including Romantic Music in the genres of Boleros, Trova, and other styles. On April 1 the audience will experience Antonio’s music first hand as he performs different styles of music and shares little stories about the different songs he will interpret.
A Review of Latin American Music is a free event for adults that will be held at Headwaters Music and Arts in Bemidji (519 Minnesota Ave NW). Those interested in attending can contact Headwaters by phone at 218.444.5606 or just plan to show up.
