LULAC is throwing a free concert in Albuquerque this weekend featuring Ozomatli
By Anne Artley, fearless intern [ Wed Jul 14 2010 1:41 PM ]
This Saturday head to the Tingley Coliseum for a FREE concert, Voces Unidas por America. The event is sponsored by LULAC (League of United Latin American Citizens), which is in town this week for a national convention. According to LULAC President Rosa Rosales, the concert is meant to solidify the strength of the Latino community and take a stand against Arizona’s SB 1070 and HB 2281. The show features Latin artists Pee Wee, Cristian Castro and Ozomatli.
From L.A., Ozomatli is well known for melding genres. The songs are a spicy blend of merengue, salsa and hip-hop beats. What you may not have known is that members’ creativity and political lyrics have earned them a place as U.S. State Department Cultural Ambassadors. “Our world standing has deteriorated,” says Ulises Bella on the Ozomatli website. “I’m totally willing and wanting to give a different image of America than America has given over the last five years.”
The concert is free, but entrance requires tickets. Pick yours up at the Northeast Expo Hall at the Albuquerque Convention Center. All-ages.
