Summary
Tio Lito Azocar interviews Jorge Vargas, Spanish teacher at Jasper Place High School. Jorge talks about how he uses music to encourage his students to learn Spanish and discovering the musical talents of his students. Jorge Vargas and his Spanish students perform an eclectic collection Spanish-language folk and pop songs, including “Volare,” “Quien Sera (Sway),” “Vamos A La Playa,” “La Bamba,” “Cielito Lindo,” “Guantanamera,” “Besame Mucho,” and “Llego La Banda Trayendo Salsa.” One of the students, Connor McLean, performs an original song called "Someday." Jorge also performs an original song, "La Expresion La Palabra," which he wrote while living in Chile during the Pinochet dictatorship. The episode ends with a musical performance by Amaury.
