The Picky Fingers Banjo Podcast

Mar 14, 2020

In this episode, host Keith Billik chats with Pau Barjau of Che Apalache. Pau has a very interesting job, interpreting rhythms and sounds that are not typically heard on the banjo! Hear about his unlikely path going from a teenage bass player in Mexico City, to an aspiring banjo player in Buenos Aires, to recording a Grammy-nominated album in the United States with Bela Fleck producing.
