Enjoy traditional New Mexican music and panel discussions on relevant topics.

Featuring David F. García, Gregorio Gonzales, Rafael Herrera, Lone Piñón, Lara Manzanares, Jerome Martínez, Brenda Romero, and special guest, Frank McCulloch.

The “folk” repertory of traditional Música Nuevomexicana is a vast and varied medley of old and new music composed of elements of a millennial legacy of Iberian and Mexican narrative and religious ballads (romancero); a vibrant and dynamic lyric tradition (cancionero); culturally hybrid Indo-Hispano music (inditas); and numerous overlays of styles and vogues, from 18th- and 19th-century instrumental dance music (the so-called Spanish Colonial repertoire), to locally adapted mariachi, popular Mexican música ranchera (ranch or country music), Texas Mexican (Tejano), Nueva Canción (Latin American folk revival), and locally evolving strains of the 20th and 21st century pop.

A series of roundtables and events around the topic of “Decolonizing Strategies in Ethnomusicology, Teaching, and Performance: Perspectives from the U.S. Southwest and Latin America” accompanies this program.

Free and open to the public
