Roland Chadwick – Mexico – 1989

 

In 1989 Roland toured Mexico as Australia’s representative at the Festival Cervantino. One of the last concerts was filmed and the tape has only just been converted from Mexican Beta to Digital.

 

 

 

 

Roland had toured Italy, Sweden, England and the USA prior to this recording being made.  Some of the camera work is highly artistic, even surreal but the performances give an insight into the levels he had achieved at that time.
