Pablo Yglesias

Hear this show now: RealAudio | Add comments


Pablo Yglesias compiled the recently released Rough Guide to Salsa Dura NYC cd and the soon-to-be-released new edition of the Rough Guide to Salsa. And he has several other Rough Guides comps in the works. Also an artist and graphic designer, he's the author of the beautiful book Cocinando! Fifty Years Of Latin Album Cover Art (Princeton Architectural Press). And as DJ Bongohead, Pablo spins regularly on his home turf in Western Massachusetts.

Tonight starting from one half hour into the show, Pablo is our guest dj. He plays a range of Latin music from old school to very new school, including some unusual genre-hybrids. And he shares his encyclopedic knowledge of the music.
