Pere Soto in San Miguel

By Gilberto Gonzalez

Once again, San Miguel de Allende proudly welcomes Pere Soto, master guitar player and gypsy jazz pioneer from Spain, to the Teatro Ángela Peralta. “The Swinging Gitanos” will accompany him, with Julian Arcos and Jacobo Hechem on guitar and Gilberto González on double bass. The same night, on the same stage, a very special performance will also take place. Anita Von Ballmoos, originally from Switzerland and a well-known music figure in San Miguel, will play her accordion. The group “La Quinta Esencia” will play their latest work, Longing Balm, recorded in 2013, and containing traditional and original themes. Anita & La Quinta Esencia will open the session with some traditional gypsy pieces from eastern Europe. Gilberto González and Julian Arcos will play with them, and Jacobo Hechem will join after a few songs. Then Pere Soto will jump up to the stage to close the circle.
