Three years ago at Gustavo Dudamel's famous first concert as music director of the Los Angeles Philharmonic - a free celebration at the Hollywood Bowl that was piped around the world - the stellar young Venezuelan conductor joyfully disdained separatist geography. He told the impassioned crowd that he envisioned a single American continent where there is no north, no south, no central. We are one, he proclaimed, to roaring cheers. Had Dudamel wanted to be L.A.'s mayor and had there been an election the next day, he could now be pulling out his curls coping with a big city's woes.

Dominican singer Juan Luis Guerra, recovered from recent eye surgery that forced him to cancel several concert appearances, has introduced his new album, "Areito," his first recording in two years. Although Guerra insists that he has no political aspirations, one of his songs, "El costo de la vida," contains a strong political/humanitarian message.

During the sultry days and nights of his Venezuelan youth, Gustavo Dudamel constantly heard the masters' music blasting from radios or pouring out of Caracas nightclubs and concert halls: the jazz-inflected salsa of Eddie Palmieri, the merengue-bachata fusions of Juan Luis Guerra and, of course, the Afro-Cuban and Latin pop philosophizing of Rubén Blades. Although the burgeoning classical conductor was consumed with absorbing Beethoven, Tchaikovsky and Mahler, he also was internalizing the tropical rhythms that were his hemispheric birthright.

Latino advocates have been up in arms recently over the exclusion of Latino soldier stories from Burns' new seven-part documentary, "The War," which explores the conflict through the personal narratives of veterans and their families.
