Show Notes

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.
