The Frestival Cervantino is the largest music festival in Latin America. It lasts three weeks and brings in artists from all over the world. The town of Guanajuato is overrun by people of every kind – from elderly classical music fans to itinerant post-hippies looking for the next party. The upside for us that live here is that we get to see some fantastic music for a reasonable cost right here at home.
I was invited by Armando Lopez Valdivia to perform as a special guest
with his early music group “Los Tiempos Pasados” in the Cervantino
festival here in Guanajuato. We did two shows, one in the Templo Valenciana, an old gorgeous cathedral here in town and another in a beautiful theatre in the downtown of the nearby city of Leon. Both events turned out wonderfully and I made some
new musical friends as well. Below are two photos, the first is from
the show in Leon and the second is from the Valenciana cathedral.
