  1. Capilano Universe presents: Stephen Boswell — Strumming Through History: How the Music of the Guitar Echoes Spanish and South American History. From the aristocratic dignity of the early Spanish Renaissance’s strict polyphony to the exotic, virtuosic syncopations of the modern Tango, the Chacarera, and flamenco Soleares, this lecture and musical demonstration traces the diverse course of the guitar in the culture of Spain and South America.
