Ben Shirley: “Argentina’s Rock Nacional has the true spirit of rock that was lost”

Based in Atlanta, musician Ben Shirley plays with the experimental noise orchestra “Faun and a Pan Flute” and the improvisation duo “Whispers of the Night.” He is originally from North Carolina, but his time in Buenos Aires was “a transformative experience.” In this episode of “Hybrid Atlanta,” he speaks about Argentina’s rock nacional and the importance of international musical flows.

Hybrid Atlanta is a video series of interviews with local artists and creatives whose work establishes a dialogue with LatinX and global cultures.

Created by Paul Alonso, it is produced by Polivision, a multimedia and bilingual outlet based in Atlanta.
