Latin-American music, with its heady blend of Spanish, African and indigenous cultures is an exotic, surprising and often a highly sophisticated musical language. The violin has always played a key role in Latin music, from the charanga bands of Cuba to the virtuoso fiddlers from the Mexican west. It's valued everywhere for its ability to move naturally between singing lyricism and incisive rhythmic attack. The Fiddler Collections series makes authentic folk music available in a flexible format suitable for teaching, busking and performance suitable for players of various abilities. Play this music as solos, duets, trios, or use it as a basis for forming a larger folk band. Some of the music is familiar, some more exotic, but all of it is absolutely authentic, faithfully arranged and, above all, hugely enjoyable. Available in two formats: Violin editio edition (also includes keyboard and violin accompaniments). Includes notes on the musical style and performance tips.
