Taller de Laudería con el Godo

A couple weeks ago, we had the honor of hosting the master, Alfredo Herrera for a taller de laudería at our place. With his guidance, I managed to extract a beautiful requinto jarocho out of a solid block of mahogany. Seriously one of most fulfilling experiences of my life. The video leaves out hundreds of steps, but it provides a sense of how involved the process of making an instrument really is. Godo is a true artisan. The film was shot by Rosa Angelica.
