I am very saddened to hear this news about Jorge as well. My contact with him was brief but very memorable. I met him in 1993 when he came to San Francisco to perform at the Noe Valley Ministry. I helped to drive him around while he was in town. He was a very polite and intensely focused person. He gave a very memorable performance, incorporating his "body percussion," a series of clay pots (called cantaros) and ocarinas, and strategically placed candles. He graciously gave to me as a thank you gift one of the large cantaros from Oaxaca he had brought with him on the plane. I used the cantaro on my Folklore and Blind Messenger CDs, and I'd like to think that his spirit still inhabits it.
