|Tuesday, April 02, 2019, 06:00pm
Free. For decades, a rich conversation has been exchanging musical ideas between the Americas: the ballad, from Spain and Mexico; the cumbia, of Caribbean African/Indian roots; and nueva canción (new song), social struggle music influenced by U.S. labor and protest songs. Musician and folklorist Chuy Martinez puts the songs and rhythms in historical context.
