Puerto Rican singer-songwriter Fernandito Ferrer is a young pioneer among a new breed of singer-songwriters in Puerto Rico. Born in San Germán, Ferrer draws inspiration from the Nueva Trova giants of the 70's whose songs were a cornerstone of Latin American protest music of that era. His percussive guitar technique and impressive vocal abilities, together with the use of subtle yet powerful melody and poetic imagery, puts his home-grown music in a much wider context. His style is best compared to the works of Tracy Chapman, Ani DiFranco, Antonio Cabán Vale, Silvio Rodríguez and Nick Drake. Hosted by Center Without Walls and Luis Edgardo Cotto, director of Egleston Main Streets.
