Olivia Chiang Plays La Pajarera by Ponce

Nineteen year old American guitarist Olivia Chiang plays La Pajarera from Tres Canciones Populares Mexicanas arranged by Manuel Ponce (1882-1948) on a Luigi Locatto guitar. This comes via the excellent Guitar Salon International via their YouTube. Great to see more videos from this amazing young guitarist. I featured her years back when she was sixteen and it’s fun to see the young generation develop via YouTube. This work has some intense left hand chord work along with a melody but she navigates it with clean changes and a well-phrased melody. Chiang is currently studying at USC Thornton Music School with Scott Tennant.

The sheet music for the Ponce can be found on Amazon: Tres Canciones Populares Mexicanas by Ponce.
