Special Guest: Dr. Robert Saxe and the Music of Mexico Ensemble, 1964

Our special guest is Robert Saxe, UCLA '67, '79.  Saxe earned his Ph.D. in Management, but played violin, guitar, and jarana huasteca in the Music of Mexico ensemble.  I am thrilled he has agreed to share his memories of the early years of the Music of Mexico ensemble. - Maureen

Huasteca conjunto - Robert Saxe, Larry Saunders, Donn Borcherdt
