With his ’80s alt-rock band The Silos, songwriter Walter Salas-Humara blended New York City grit with Southern twang. In his subsequent solo career, Salas-Humara has continued his Americana travels while also exploring his Cuban roots. His latest album, Walterio, leans on influences from the guitarist’s musical and personal history. Its gems include the Spanish-language song “Camino del Oro,” a tune about “listening to one another from different points of view,” as he told an Arizona newspaper last year. Also a painter known for his playful dog portraits, Salas-Humara hits the Georgia Theatre Thursday with support from Knoxville, TN garage-rock duo Bark.
