There’s a wonderful world of baroque music from Latin America. Musicians such as Ignacio de Jerusalem and Manuel de Zumaya were talented, highly trained musicians in the tradition of Bach, Handel, and others. Unfortunately their music not as well known, but Sebastian Zubieta’s job is to change that. He’s a composer/conductor and Director of Music for the Americas Society, a non-profit organization with a mission that includes increasing public awareness and appreciation of the diverse cultural heritage of the Americas. Sebastian Zubieta recently spoke with Suzanne about some outstanding Latin American music and musicians, past and present, and how he gets the word out about them.
