Luis Alberto Del Parana

DSC02879

Okay, here’s ”the Real McCoy’. Luis Alberto Del Parana and Los Paraguayos, first toured Europe back in 1954, and by the time this record was released 19 years later, Luis and his crew were world-renowned performers of genuine Latin American folk music.  A native of Paraguay, Luis covered all the traditional tunes from Mexico to Argentina and everywhere in between, and his dedication to the cause made him a hero in his homeland: whenever he returned home from touring, the Paraguayan army would lay-on a guard of honour at the airport, and then a presidential limo with police escort would whisk him away to his riverside mansion.
