7 pm

Music has always been an integral part of the history of Barelas, and many of New Mexico’s well-known musicians have come from this community. In 2012, the NHCC partnered with the Barelas Coffee House to present the Rock ‘n’ Soul Show and Revue, then in its seventh year.  This event, showcasing great rock, soul, R&B and New Mexico rancherita tunes from the 1960s through the 1980s, recreated the touring shows performed in legendary Albuquerque venues during those years and provided a forum for the reunion of some of the city’s finest musicians from that era. In 2014 the Barelas Coffee House presented Oh What A Night, and in 2015 Cruizin’ Central, to sold-out houses; these were unique opportunities for family and friends to come together and listen, sing along, and dance to music from the 1950s through the 1980s. In 2016 and 2017, the first and second Remember the Time dance concerts brought back memories of happy times at venues such as the Civic Auditorium, Leo’s La Roc, and the Far West. This year’s concert, focusing on more recent decades, once again celebrates life, love, and music at its best with great Albuquerque musicians who have been entertaining New Mexico audiences over the years.  Featured bands are Picoso, Fat City, and Soul Divine, three dynamic local dance bands with dedicated fan bases.

Opened in 1978 as a precursor to the ongoing revitalization of the neighborhood, the Barelas Coffee House is itself an iconic Albuquerque venue and a popular local meeting place as well as a tourist attraction.  The NHCC is once again entering into a presenting partnership with the Barelas Coffee House, through owner Michael Anthony Gonzales, for the 3rd annual Remember the Time dance concert.
$27 w/ $2 off for NHCC members

Welcome to Shelbyville poster

Film: Welcome to Shelbyville

7 pm

June screenings in the Bank of America Free Thursday Film Series initiate Becoming American: A Documentary Film and Discussion Series on our Immigration Experience. This six-week series is a project of City Lore, a cultural center for the arts and humanities based in New York City. It is funded by the National Endowment for the Humanities as part of NEH’s Community Conversations initiative, and features documentary film screenings and scholar-led discussions designed to encourage an informed discussion of immigration issues against the backdrop of our immigration history.

The National Hispanic Cultural Center is one of 24 organizations selected nationwide to participate in the Becoming American project. The scholar/moderator for the screenings and discussions at the Center is Dr. Gabriel Sanchez, Professor of Political Science at the University of New Mexico. The theme for Unit Two, presented on June 28, is “Promise and Prejudice.”

The powerful documentary Welcome to Shelbyville focuses on a small Tennessee town in the heart of the Bible Belt as it grapples with discrimination in the face of changing demographics. Shelbyville’s long-time residents are challenged with how to best integrate the recent arrival of hundreds of Somali refugees of Muslim faith, hired by the local Tyson chicken-processing plant. As the town erupts in controversy, we hear from all parts of the community: Latino workers grappling with their own immigrant identity; longtime African American residents balancing perceived threats to their livelihood against the values they learned from their own civil rights struggles; the Somali refugees attempting to make new lives for their families and maintain their dignity in a hostile new land; and white civic and church leaders who are attempting to guide their congregations and citizens through a period of unprecedented change.
2010; directed by Kim A. Snyder; English; 66 minutes; not rated.

Pascuala Ilabaca 125

Domingos en Arte: Pascuala Ilabaca y Fauna

July 15

7:30 pm

A rising star among young Chilean singer-songwriters, Pascuala Ilabaca creates music that is rooted in Chilean folk traditions and informed by a childhood moving from Barcelona to Chile, Mexico to India, and back again, while incorporating strands of jazz, pop, rock, and other influences into the mix. Her voice is as vibrant as the brilliant red accordion she plays, and her song lyrics focus on positive messages of feminism, anti-violence, and cultural heritage. Ilabaca’s first album, Pascuala canta a Violeta, is an homage to Chilean composer, songwriter, and folklorist Violeta Parra. Her formidable band, Fauna, is made up of accordion, keyboard, saxophone, clarinet, percussion, bass, and guitar.

Domingos en Arte, a summer music and dance series presented by Melaza Music, AMP Concerts, and the National Hispanic Cultural Center is a family-friendly summer event on Sundays in NHCC’s charming Fountain Courtyard that features live music, drinks, and delicious Latin cuisine. The NHCC’s newest on-campus restaurant—La Fonda del Bosque—will be offering unique themed dinners before each concert and providing a cash bar and tapas throughout the night.

Advance $13, Day of Show $18
