Paul Winter's Winter Solstice Celebration

For many of us, the sound Paul Winter's sax, ringing out in New York's Cathedral of St John the Divine, has become an annual marker of the Winter Solstice and the holiday season.

But this year we kick off with the cuatro, a member of the mandolin family and the national instrument of Puerto Rico, played by Pachito Vega, performing with Danny Rivera, the man they call The National Voice of Puerto Rico. He's Paul Winter's special guest for our broadcast of the 35th annual Winter Solstice concert.

We'll also feature American gospel singer Theresa Thomason, and the Forces of Nature percussion ensemble with sounds from African, Caribbean and European traditions – the mix that formed the sound of the Americas. This concert will rring out across North America via the annual NPR broadcast with WNYC "New Sounds" host John Schaefer. Settle in and join our global village for this year's edition of Solstice Live.
