A powerful personal statement and journey in Black American Music.

It’s Fat Tuesday! Mardi Gras! But in Latin America — it’s Carnaval! You probably have seen or heard some of the styles from Brasil, whose Carnaval in Rio is world famous. However, tonight, in a special student produced segment, we travel throughout Latin America and get to know the music and the traditions surrounding Carnaval.

I had the pleasure of being on the island of Curacao for the 7th annual Curacao North Sea Jazz Festival. I was able to experience the island through a few excursions and brought it’s food, history and culture back to the United States via my live broadcast from the island. What a beautiful place with incredible people. Please enjoy these clips and pictures from the exquisite island of Curacao!

This Tuesday at 8 pm, tune into Fiesta Musical as host Guillermo Brown and co-host Gary Elter celebrate 10 years on the air.
