Free ticketed event; tickets available one hour before performance
New Mexico folk traditions, old and new, take center stage during an afternoon of captivating music as the University of New Mexico’s Robb Musical Trust and the National Hispanic Cultural Center present their annual celebration of traditional Nuevo Mexicano music, ¡Música del Corazón!

On the wings of melody, rhythm, and poetry, ¡Música del Corazón! concerts, featuring new groups and different traditions each year, tell us as much about our past as about our future. The concerts honor the contributions of John Donald Robb, Sr., former dean of UNM’s College of Fine Arts and a recognized music pioneer, and are dedicated in memory of his son, John Donald Robb, Jr., a driving force in the development of the Robb Musical Trust. The 2017 concert is also dedicated to Priscilla Robb McDonnell, sister of John D. Robb, Jr. It is preceded by an informative pre-concert lecture by concert curator Enrique Lamadrid.

This year’s concert commemorates Nuevo Mexicano roots in the musical contexts of Mexico and Spain, in keeping with the vision of the Robb Musical Trust. Featured performers are:
• Lone Piñon, a lively string conjunto equally at home with the tunes of the bailes nuevomexicanos, the huapangos of Mexico’s Huasteca region, the sones abajeños of the state of Michoacán, and the music of the borderlands;
• Tomás Lozano and his Alburquerque group ¡Viva la Pepa!, celebrating our deepest Iberian heritage with the ancient romance ballads still sung in the upper Rio Grande, and the unusual instruments that once accompanied them;
• Frank McCulloch, returning with his Amigos to explore more of his vast regional repertoire of songs and ballads, charting how Mexico has always inspired the New Mexican musical imagination;

For more information, please contact the Robb Musical Trust at 505-277-8967 or admin@robbtrust.org.

Festival Chispa Presents: Nano Stern

November 16
Albuquerque Journal Theatre
1701 4th St SW
Albuquerque, NM 87102 United States
+ Google Map

7:30 pm

Born in Santiago in 1985, the grandson of Jewish refugees fleeing persecution in Europe, Nano Stern represents a new generation inspired by the nueva canción movement. A guitar virtuoso with a powerful singing voice, he combines traditional Chilean, Latin American, and European folk music with jazz improvisation and rock influence, as well as his early classical training and the inspiration of musical icons such as Violeta Parra and Inti-Illimani. Outspoken and passionate as well as experimental, Stern delivers powerful universal messages with a deep sense of social justice. With numerous international festival appearances and ten albums to his credit, he has a devoted following stretching through Latin America and into Europe and Australia.

Of the Chilean musical activists like Inti-Illimani who continued to lead the nueva canción movement during the years of the Pinochet dictatorship, Stern says, “I am extremely respectful of the tradition. It is an enormous gift we received from the people of the past.”

Festival Chispa Presents, a partnership with Avokado Artists, is a series that showcases some of the finest and most innovative groups, both legendary and up-and-coming, that the Latino world has to offer. Fusing various musical genres, cultures, and traditions, this dynamic series breaks down musical boundaries and leaves the audience wanting more!

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.
