Domingos en Arte: Lone Piñon, Otilio Ruiz and Chuy Martinez

June 18

6 pm

Acoustic trio Lone Piñon, from Santa Fe, celebrates the diversity of their region’s cultural roots. Reviving and updating the Chicano string band style that once flourished in New Mexico, they bring their consummate musicianship to northern New Mexican polka and chotis, Mexican huapango and son calentano, and classic borderlands conjunto. They are joined by veteran Albuquerque musicians Chuy Martínez, a guitarist, singer-songwriter, folklorist, and community cultural worker, and Otilio Ruiz, a virtuoso harpist, music teacher, and director of La Rondalla de Albuquerque.

Domingos en Arte, a summer music and dance series presented by Melaza Music, AMP Concerts, and the National Hispanic Cultural Center in the NHCC’s Fountain Courtyard, enters its second season beginning in June. We have invited some of our musician friends, from the local community and outside, for lively community get-togethers right next to the beautiful Rio Grande Bosque. Spend Sunday evenings from 6 PM to 10 PM enjoying live music, drinks, and delicious Latin cuisine with family and friends in this enchanting courtyard setting, with one or all of the groups who will be performing this season.
$12; free for 12 and younger

TradiSón (Cuba)
Wednesday, July 19, 2017 at 7:30 pm
A special mid-week performance in the series features TradiSón, the house band at La Bodeguita del Medio restaurant in Havana, famous for a storied clientele including Ernest Hemingway and Pablo Neruda. The band, as its name suggests, specializes in the son, a musical form that combines Afro-Cuban rhythms and Spanish melody, while performing other lively Cuban musical genres such as guaracha, guajira, and bolero.

Los Hacheros (Brooklyn, NYC)
Sunday, July 23, 2017 at 7:30 pm
Brooklyn’s Los Hacheros are modern-day torchbearers of the Golden Age of Latin music, reviving folkloric styles like son montuno, guaracha, and salsa, and often combining them with bomba, a fiery rhythm from the mountains of Puerto Rico. Their debut album Pilón was acclaimed for “…its solid arrangements and lively original songs [that] have impressed old-school salseros and young music fans alike.” Their sophomore album, Bambulaye, was recorded live to vintage analog tape, giving it a raw, warm sound similar to that of the Latin legends who have inspired the group.
$17; free for 12 and younger
