What's the music?

An evening of Latin Classical Psychedelic music for dreaming under the trees.

Canto de Iemanjá – Baden Powell
Ojos Brujos – Gonzalo Roig
Gnossienne No. 1 - Erik Satie
Floresta do Amazonas: Melodia Sentimental - Heitor Villa-Lobos
Camiño das Estrelas – John W. Warren
Preludio Saudade (from La Catedral) - Agustin Barrios Mangoré


A Taste of Honey - Bobby Scott & Ric Marlow
The Look of Love - Burt Bacharach & Hal David

Hotel California - Eagles
Nana da Lua (Lullaby for the Moon) - John W. Warren

Where does this music come from?

We will perform pieces from the historical tradition of guitar and folkloric music from South America, including Brazilian Afro-sambas, classical guitar music from Cuba and Paraguay, a piece by Brazilian composer Heitor Villa-Lobos, and impressionistic music by Erik Satie. We'll also perform instrumental arrangements of classic tunes from the 1960s, and 70s and 80s classics by the Eagles and Roxy Music, and two original compositions inspired by the music of Latin America and Spain. We've coined the term Latin Classical Psychedelic to describe our music as it embraces these and other traditions.

Hello, attendees for the "Dream Under the Trees" event... this is Eric, the host. I need to let everyone who is planning to attend know that my spouse and I tested positive for COVID this week. We have minimal symptoms and are fully vaccinated, even with the latest booster. THE EVENT WILL STILL GO ON. We will be masked and the concert is in an outdoor space with plenty of room. It just feels wrong to me not to disclose this important detail, however. If you have any questions at all, feel free to call or text me at 301-437-2572. We hope to see you tonight. It will be a beautiful evening of fantastic music and a chance to meet new friends and neighbors. THANK YOU! Eric

Lovely evening under the trees in Takoma Park, with a warm and appreciative audience. It's always a pleasure to perform with Bruno Lucini! We played a few debut pieces and original compositions in the mix. Wonderful crowd with several first-time Groupmusers!
