Spring in South America

The American Embassy in Paraguay is negotiating with Salzman and Associates to help promote American music in the country for Paraguay’s bicentennial. First up Blues for Paraguay…we have no doubt they will love what is considered true American roots music. Marty Salzman was the first music agent to bring Blues to Brazil over 25 years ago and the Brazilians, who naturally love music, took to Blues and even today Marty Salzman is known as the “go to guy” for Brazil. Speaking fluent Portuguese certainly helps but so does having close working relationships with many of the major artists in blues and rock world. Marty was the first the bring Buddy Guy, Junior Wells, Etta James, Magic Slim, Paul Rodgers, Wilson Pickett, the Commitments and many other well known artists to the beautiful beaches of Rio as well as the touring all over the country as far north as Recife and far south as Porto Allegro.
