The Music of Jimmy Ojotriste by Arturo Hernandez Sametier

The Music of Jimmy Ojotriste by Arturo Hernandez Sametier


A lush, nostalgic barrio romance told through the music of a young street guitarist with a sad and bewitched glass eye. In late 70’s LA, Jimmy Ojotriste is struggling with being illegal, busking for a living and wishing for a way into the life of a beautiful, Jewish flamenco dancer. The mariachis who raised the orphaned Jimmy, insist that “music provides everything,” but his grandmother warns that a musician’s life left his father “talking to himself on the street,” and is nothing but “illusions and delusions.” With two best friends, Jimmy has earned a living as a street trio since childhood. At 20, the three boys are hitting the wall, and when Ray’s cancer metastasizes, they chance all on a quest from LA to Andalucía in hopes music brings love, healing and a place in the world.
