Today, September 26, 2012, Paquito D’Rivera was declared "Hijo Dilecto de Asunción" (honesty with love and respectful recognition – son of Asunción). The honor comes from the city of Asunción, the capitol of Paraguay.

Paquito D’Rivera was very moved, and declared himself a ‘lover of Paraguay’, and that he wants to return with his wife, to know the country better. He later commented on Facebook to be very honored by the recognition.

Tonight, along with guitarist Berta Rojas, Paquito performs pieces from Dia y Medio, a CD dedicated to Paraguay, Gran Teatro del Banco Central del Paraguay. The album was just nominated for Best Instrumental Album by the Latin Grammys.
