Alberto Martínez, editor in chief for Orfeo Magazine, has shared with us the new issue #16 of his magazine. This time, rather than focusing on luthiers from a particular country, Alberto invites us to join him on a journey through time.

Orfeo Magazine No. 16 describes the history of the guitar as told by Emilio Pujol in a great interview from 1960’s conducted by Narcis Bonet. The following sections include the development of the family of plucked string instruments around the globe – Asia, Africa, Americas and Europe! Orfeo Magazine No. 16 features many of the guitar’s relatives, whether or not they are close kins or distant cousins.

    Thanks so much. This is just the right kind of content to remind us of chordophonic interconnectedness and the importance of cross-cultural fertilization, continued collaboration. Thanks again.
