John Williams & Berta Rojas in Top Form at London Concert

Rojas is a champion of South American music, and especially that of her countryman, Barrios. Williams had invited her to play an all-Barrios program for her part of the concert, and she truly delivered.



Barrios in black and white

John Williams might not be the first or foremost interpreter of the Paraguayan guitar maestro Agustín Barrios Mangoré (1885–1944), but he is certainly the best known. In the 1970s, Williams introduced Barrios’s music to audiences outside Latin America through television and concert performances and the album From the Jungles of Paraguay: John Williams Plays Barrios (1977). For a recording closer in spirit to Barrios’s own performances, though, you might prefer Berta Rojas’s Intimate Barrios (1998).

Felicidade CD

The straightforward, honest and electric performances give voice to the music with a feeling of being born on the spot. Recorded in Paraguay, Argentina and Brazil, the sound throughout has fire and soul.


Felicidade CD

Berta Rojas is one of the most active and original guitarists of the international musical scene. The Latin-American matrix of her discography reaches its ultimate consecration with this album. We are before a truly beautiful work which renders homage to the boundless Brazilian musical legacy.
