Gracias Catalina!

Muchisimas gracias Cata for the jam before our last show! One of our great female cajón players. Also representing at this year’s Smithsonian Folklife festival. Here she shows me how to play and sing a snippet of “Amador toca Chinchano” written by Roberto Arguedas. Also, love pink robe in background;-)
