Juan Pablo Contreras - Celebrating Mexican Culture
By Composer's Studio
Join Tarik and Anna for a great conversation with composer, Juan Pablo Contreras, a Latin GRAMMY®-nominated composer from Guadalajara, Mexico. In his music, Juan Pablo explores his joyful but complicated relationships with history, place, and his love for both Western classical and Mexican folk music, resulting in a musical journey full of joy, humor, and just a touch of violence. His works have been performed by major orchestras throughout Mexico, including, the National Symphony Orchestra of Mexico, the Salta and Córdoba Symphonies in Argentina, the Simón Bolívar Symphony Orchestra of Venezuela, the Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra, and many others.
