Don Pedro Dimas
El Maestro, the dean of Purepecha fiddlers, passed last week, and we’ll spend some time listening to his music and telling some stories, and remembering him.
… and a conversation with Zaidee Stavely about his life and legacy.
For a look at Mirando al Lago (it’s worth it), Don Pedro’s orchestra, with dancers wearing regalia that he designed, dancing his choreography - tune in to the Quarantine Happy hour on Sunday, January 31, at 5:30pm PST.
If you can’t hear it live - most Crackin the Vault shows will be available on the Centrum podcast channel:
Thanks for listening, have fun!
