Larry & Joe's sophomore album, "Manos Panamericanos."
Produced by Larry & Joe and Jason Richmond.
Recorded, mixed and mastered by Jason Richmond
between December 2023 and February 2024
in Durham, North Carolina.
Album art by Sam Sheridan.

"Manos Panamericanos" is as much a collection of traditional music from across the Americas as it is the uncharted fusion of Latin American and Appalachian folk. The album features 6 original arrangements of traditional songs, classics from Venezuela, the United States, Colombia, Argentina and The Dominican Republic. These songs have deeply personal meanings and backstories for Larry & Joe. The remaining four tracks are originals: an instrumental written by Larry in a contemporary música llanera style, and three songs written by Joe addressing themes such as new love, growing pains, natural disasters and climate change. This, the duo's sophomore album also features 8 noteworthy guest musicians from Venezuela, Peru, Argentina, the United States, the Dominican Republic and Ireland. The 10 tracks encompass a patchwork of Pan American genres: música llanera, calipso, vallenato, oldtime, tango, waltz, jazz, R&B, pop, merengue, bluegrass, and many more. This co-production between Larry & Joe and their trusted engineer Jason Richmond is openly eclectic, but despite their genre-bending abandon, Larry & Joe's unmistakable spark and synergy permeate its entirety. You can just hear the world spinning its heart out trying to keep up!

Note on album title meaning:

"Manos Panamericanos" means "Pan American Brothers" in Venezuelan Spanish. “Manos” is short for “hermanos,” but it also means “hands.” However, since “hand” is a feminine noun in Spanish, were this album meant to mean “Pan American Hands,” it would be written “Manos Panamericanas.” The album title is thus a clever play on words that intentionally insinuates poorly spoken Spanish.
