Listen to Tertulia on your phone!
Welcome to ¡Tertulia! When a group of individuals come together and share their ideas, talents and anecdotes in the spirit of interpreting life, when there is song and poetry and when there is wit in conversation, then we say that a ¡Tertulia! has formed. ¡Tertulia! on WFCR is the space where a dialogue takes place among Spanish speakers and all those who are interested in Latin American culture and in the music, the arts, the language and the issues of actuality for Latinos in New England. On ¡Tertulia! a music lover will find Latin Jazz, Boleros, Salsa, Merengue, Nueva Trova, Tango and Folk music from Puerto Rico, Central America, Colombia, the Andean Region and Spain. And because there has traditionally been a great exchange of culture and music among the nationalities of the Americas, listeners will sometimes find the Spanish language selection interspersed with music from Brazil, Haiti, Martinique, Guadaloupe and Jamaica. Another element that is a constant on ¡Tertulia! is news and public affairs. News pieces in English and Spanish, discussion of topics of importance to the Latino community, and the weekly calendar of events, Página Informativa, are heard on ¡Tertulia!.
