Ramon Ponce

Fourth generation mariachi musician Ramon Ponce joins us from his living room to discuss the story of CTMD Touring Artists Mariachi Real de Mexico, the premiere mariachi ensemble on the east coast, and the importance of this tradition in New York City. He also presents a few excerpts of concerts from before the quarantine alongside a solo acoustic performance on his guitar at home. A few words of advice about how learning music can help us get through these difficult times finishes the program.
