|Junior Makes the Gig – An Island Music True Tale
In 1999, I took some long needed R&R and spent 6 months in Costa Rica in the Caribe Sur area, near Puerto Viejo de Talamanca. I wound up playing in an island music group three nights a week andthough the pay was only 5000 colones a night – $ 18 at the time – the true value lay in a cultural experience not countable in currency.
That’s where I met Junior Alvarez and got to know him and hear his story.
