Sanja Plohl Plays Maxixe by Barrios

Sanja Plohl, guitar

Slovenian-born (Madrid based) guitarist Sanja Plohl plays Maxixe by Paraguayan guitarist/composer Agustín Barrios Mangore (1885-1944). One of Barrios’ folk-flavoured dances with plenty of fun chord and scale work. It’s pieces like this one that remind me of the way jazz players whip through chords and melody. It really puts the guitar in its unique place in music, straddling the worlds of classical and folk music…an instrument of the ‘people’.

You can find the sheet music via Amazon: Complete Works of Agustin Barrios Mangore, Vol. 1
