Inside Songwriting Workshop with Changüí Majadero

3 pm

Join Changüí Majadero (before their performance for Domingos en Arte) in the History and Literary Arts Building to learn about how the band imagines, writes and puts music to lyrics.

New York Music Daily describes the band’s lyrics to Un Burro y un Elefante as a “wry, spot-on critique of American politics” and to Pa Cuba Me Voy as a “fearless political shout-out to the island.”  Where does songwriting start?  How does it make its way to music and song?

Inside Songwriting with Changüí Majadero is a free event but spaces are limited. Reserve your spot by July 25: https://nhccnm.wufoo.com/forms/m14m7ux1qi8wa7/.

Domingos en Arte: Nosotros

August 12

7:30 pm

Nosotros is one of the most recognizable Latin bands in the Southwest United States. They have twice been featured on NPR’s Alt Latino, twice been named winners in the prestigious John Lennon Songwriting Competition, been awarded 11 NM Music Awards and have shared the stage with some of the biggest names in music. This 9-piece Latin music powerhouse seamlessly combines Latin rhythms with elements of Rock, Salsa, Jazz and Cumbia, creating an original sound that is unmistakably Nosotros. But M.E. Schenck of Hyperactive Music Magazine may have interpreted their sound best by saying “Nosotros’ music is not to be explained, it is to be felt in the pit of our souls.”

Baracutanga 125

Domingos en Arte: Baracutanga

August 19

7:30 pm

Baracutanga is a seven-piece band representing four different countries (Bolivia, Ecuador, Peru, USA) that prides itself on arranging traditional South American rhythms in new and interesting ways, such as huayño and cumbia with Middle-Eastern darbuka or mixing Afro-Cuban bata and Afro-Peruvian festejo with Andean zampoñas, among several other rhythmic combinations. This kind of experimentation, coupled with blending ancestral traditions with a modern sensibility, has resulted in an exciting and distinct Latin flavor all its own that leaves dancing crowds always wanting more.

ABQ Latin Dance Fest Lecture Series: Cuban Music: Beyond Buena Vista Social Club

August 22
Wells Fargo Auditorium
1701 4th Street SW
Albuquerque, NM 87102 United States
+ Google Map

6: 30 pm

PRESENTER: Daybert Linares Díaz

SYNOPSIS: In 1999, the release of a documentary “Buena Vista Social Club,” which depicted the process of recording the album of the same title two years prior, became a worldwide phenomenon. After decades of partial musical obscurity due to the U.S. embargo on the island, the international audience was once again regaled with the sounds of a pre-1959, pre-communist Cuba. For many U.S. people, Buena Vista Social Club signified a return to those times, a memory of a “lost” island and rhythms—both also lost in time.

Buena Vista Social Club’s international success and critical acclaim, however, bypassed entire generations of Cuban music. Indeed, the album focused mainly on rhythms that had been produced between the 1930s and 50s. But what happened between 1959, the year Fidel Castro took power, and the advent of the second millennium? What music were Cuban musicians producing during this time? What new rhythms were developed? How did the music of Cuba evolve during all these years? And more importantly, was Buena Vista Social Club an accurate representation of the contemporary music in Cuba at the time that it was released? This presentation is an invitation to explore these questions, to listen to music, and to learn what Cuba has produced, musically speaking, beyond Buena Vista Social Club.
