Latin American Ballads, Cumbia & Nueva Canción
with Chuy Martínez

Chuy Martínez
Thursday, April 26, Noon - 1:00 pm
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. Mr. Martínez puts the songs and rhythms in historical context.
