Tuesday Feb 28: Celebrate Carnaval with Fiesta Musical at 8pm

It’s Fat Tuesday! Mardi Gras! But in Latin America — it’s Carnaval! You probably have seen or heard some of the styles from Brasil, whose Carnaval in Rio is world famous. However, tonight, in a special student produced segment, we travel throughout Latin America and get to know the music and the traditions surrounding Carnaval. 

Join us on this musical journey, along with a group of high school seniors from the Institute of Notre Dame as we share these afro-latino sounds from around the continent on this Tuesday of Carnaval. Plus, we remember the music of Tito Rodríguez

8 PM on Tuesday, February 28.

Guillermo Brown has continued the tradition of bringing the sounds of salsa and Latin jazz to the Baltimore community through Fiesta Musical, a program founded by Jorge Austrich and José Ruíz, and who passed away in 2006.
