Host of Jazz It Up, and ocassionally Barricada (John Lugo's program)

I came to wpkn in 2014 to fill in for John Jairo Lugo's Barrica. Two years later, I got my own show on World Music, the 5th Tuesday of the month from 4 - 7pm. It has been an amazing experience to be able to share music, culture and language with so many people and listeners. I feel honored to be part of wpkn-radio-family!

Jazz it Up! is a bilingual program (Spanish and English).  I play Transnational or World Music, mainly from Latin American, and the Iberia Peninsula; Africa, including the North (Morocco, Algeria, Tunisia, Egypt), Afro-Latin-Jazz, American Jazz (non-mainstream musicians), Europe (mostly Spain and France), and some Asian music.
