Enrique Infante - other people's songs
Local musician Enrique Infante was nerly omnipresent at last weekend's Festival Latino - performing on both the main stage and in the children's area, plus a taekwondo demonstration. Busy.
If you missed any/all of that, the good news is that Infante has a new record out, called Canciones Ajenas (Other People's Songs). The record boasts songs in a variety of styles, from Santana-esque Latin rock to smooth percussion and acoustic guitar ballads and even hints of the traditional music of his native Peru. Well worth a listen.
Additionally, Infante's song Colors of Columbus, was selected as one of the winners of the "200Columbus In Song Contest" in celebration of the city's bincentennial.
