The Silver City Museum is excited to host a live music, history and culture presentation about some important (and catchy!) Latin music genres, with musician and folklorist Chuy Martinez. Martinez will speak and perform in the Silver City Museum Courtyard, 302 West Broadway Street on Thursday, April 26 at noon.

Chuy Martinez is a musician and folklorist who has performed all over New Mexico. The program he is sharing with us this April is about the rich, decades-long exchange musical ideas between the Americas: the ballad, from Spain and Mexico; the cumbia, of Caribbean African and Indian roots; and nueva cancion (new song), a music of social struggle influenced by U.S. labor and protest songs.
