In this video, IL postcards editor Len Galvin visits a guitar maker in the town of San Bartolome, near Cuenca in Ecuador.
San Bartolome is one of Ecuador’s “guild villages,” a system inherited from Spain that means each town or village specializes in a craft. San Bartolome (about an hour from Cuenca) is the village of the guitar makers—this video is of Snr. Uyaguari, a master guitar maker, and his son, Jose, who helps make the guitars and is an accomplished guitarist.
