About Francisco Navarro
Francisco was born in 1944 in La Consulta, a township in Mendoza, Argentina’s wine state. He trained as a classical guitarist, but his abilities extend beyond playing the guitar, as he is a consummate arranger and singer. Over time, he brought his guitar all over South America and Mexico. In Mexico City, he performed with highly acclaimed artists, such as Armando Mansanero, Bebu Silvetti, Cristian Castro, Vicente Fernandez, Lucha Villa, Cuco Sanchez, Miguel Acevez Mejia, Maria de Lourdes, Guadalope Pineda, Rosita Quintana, Veronica Castro and Hugo Jordan.
In 1984, after a decade in Mexico City, Pancho moved with his wife and three children to New York City. The gamble paid off as he became a first-call Latin American guitarist on A-list sessions. Francisco’s guitar can be heard on various movie soundtracks including; “Mambo Kings” (Guantanamera, with Celia Cruz) ; “Flawless” (Tia’s Tango with Tangurdia); and the Golden Globe and Oscar winning “Frida” (throughout the film). He has also performed on numerous recordings including; the 2006 remake of “I’m Free” with the Rolling Stones; the Fania All Stars “Bamboleo” with Celia Cruz, Hector Lavoe, Willie Colon and Pete “El Conde” Rodriguez (solo on Bamboleo); “Guasasa” with Johny Pacheco, Ray Barreto, Bobby Valentin, Papo Luca, Roberto Roena (solo on Allegria); and Wea Carobe Tito Nieves “En Otra Onda”, which was nominated for a Grammy Award. Most recently he has performed with Placido Domingo at the Washington Opera and the New York Metropolitan Opera and with renowned Argentine tango bandoneonist Tito Castro.

Pedro Javier González almost came to Hoboken
There almost wasn’t a concert at all tonight, as Pedro Javier González was originally scheduled, but had to cancel. Nice that Pablo from Right Angle came through anyway!
Here’s a bonus video for you to enjoy regardless if Pedro couldn’t show up!
