World Guitars [1/18/16 – 1/24/16]

The guitar has been around for more than 5,000 years. Found nearly everywhere in the world, and this week, the guitar is adaptable to so many styles of music: rock and roll, blues, jazz, Latin rhythms, and the folk. This week, we’ll highlight guitarists around the globe, from Latin America to Africa, and Australia to Japan and beyond.
