This is an audio recording of Henry Worrall's original composition Carmencita interpreted from the original manuscript and performed by guitarist Brian Baggett. Worrall published his solo instrumental "Carmencita Series of Mexican Dances" with E.B. Guild music publisher of Topeka, Kansas, about 1896. In the early twentieth century, Worrall's popular guitar instrumentals played a key role in the development of the guitar styles of southern rural folk musicians and country and blues musical idioms. Worrall moved to Topeka, Kansas, in 1868 where he died in 1902. Worrall's original manuscript of this piece is available on Kansas Memory as unit 208647.
