We’d like to let you in on a little secret.

Each year, ¡Globalquerque! kicks off with a free concert for our local school kids. This mini-fest features two of our regular performers doing short sets as a way to introduce the kids to some cool different cultures.

This year the participating bands are Trad.Attack! (Estonia) and Betsayda Machado y La Parranda El Clavo (Venezuela).

This year we are opening the program up to the general public. Come share some great music and the joy and enthusiasm of seeing the kids engage with the bands. We’ll be outside on the Plaza Mayor, so lots of room for everyone and tons of room to dance.

All families are welcome, as this is an incredibly kid friendly event.

For other free family-focused ¡Globalquerque! action, check out the free Global Fiesta HERE.

We do need people to register though so we can plan accordingly. If you are coming with a school or a party of 10 or more, please contact David Torres, DavidM.Torres@state.nm.us, 505-383-4770 or register on-line HERE.

Everyone else, please register HERE.

Friday at 7 pm
Saturday at 2 pm

Shoes for the Santo Niño is the story of Julianita, the youngest of eleven children, who slips out of her home one evening to take a pair of “practical” shoes that she has made to the Santo Niño de Atocha. When she enters the church, the Santo Niño and the saints come to life, and Julianita is whisked off into an evening of mystery, magic, and miracles.

This joyous piece by the Santa Fe Opera depicts the important role of the Santo Niño de Atocha as part of the traditional cultural fabric of northern New Mexico in both Hispanic and Native American families. The tale of Julianita and the Santo Niño, passed down from generation to generation, is adapted from the charming children’s story by Peggy Pond Church. The Santo Niño is known as an advocate for healing, primarily of children, and many believe that he wears the shoes left by pilgrims who visit his shrines to walk abroad and heal sick children while they sleep.
