    The great composer Franck Pourcel arrived in Mexico City last Sunday, to record here the most outstanding successes of Hispanic artists whose career has been central to the development of music in Spanish.

    Coming from Paris, the French musician came to Mexico to meet with an intense musical journey that started Wednesday in the recording studio, to whom attend 6 hours per day including Saturdays.

    This Monday Pourcel met with the maestro Venus King, who made available to him the best Mexican musicians during a chat where they shared his inclination to the universal harmonies.

    Venus Rey said that all foreigners who have recorded in Mexico have recognized upon return to their countries that...

... manufacturers of instruments called soul to the body of the violin".

    An example of the virtuosity of this extraordinary artist, can be placed during the 35th anniversary of the Cannes Film Festival.
