Program Notes

Like the very popular linguistic combination of Spanish and English, this work explores a hybrid of musical styles and genres. Spanglish celebrates the beautiful marriage of styles between Caribbean, African, and the American blues. Spanglish is spoken throughout the world, in baseball fields, university campuses, and homes like mine. The Spanglish language is beautiful and works as an expression of unity, finding what is best in all of us, community, respect, and diversity.
