"New York Encuentro"
NoFrillsMusic.com is happy to finally release this cd. 5 years in the making.
Encuentros were the meetings, or "encounters" the Mexican
Zapatistas organized in Chiapas after their rebellion in 1994.
People from outside Mexico came together for the encounters
for a unique moment to exchange ideas and try to build something
together, then they dispersed. The Zapatistas also sometimes
called these meetings "Intergalacticas", since they were all in
one space but exceeded the boundaries of that space.
Katsuyuki Itakura piano

recorded July 6, 2006 @ Wombat Studios Brooklyn, NY
