Miguel Zenon / by Maria Hinojosa | April 9, 2010

Miguel Zenon

Miguel Zenón is a master: a master saxophonist, a master hand-drummer, and—in a way—a master journalist. The dual MacArthur and Guggenheim fellow’s latest release is called “Esta Plena,” which celebrates el periodico cantado, the “sung newspaper” of Puerto Rico, accompanied by the hand-drum called panderos.

Zenón sat down with Maria to talk about the political nature of his music.
