Domingos en Arte: La Diabla

6 pm

Domingos en Arte, the summer music and dance series presented by MelazaMusic and the National Hispanic Cultural Center, enters its fourth season, with concerts scheduled through August. We have invited a wide range of Latin artists for family-friendly summer Sundays that feature live music, drinks, and delicious Latin cuisine in the NHCC’s enchanting Fountain Courtyard.

La Diabla, from Tijuana, BC, Mexico, performing on July 7, has been “cumbiando” since before it was cool. The band’s name comes from an old Celso Piña tune, and their music can be powerful and aggressive, romantic and cheerful, even dark and macabre. La Diabla has been described as La Sonora Dinamita meets Daft Punk, or Andrés Landero meets N.W.A.—but with masks, and with something for everyone to dance to!

$15 Adults w/ a $2 discount for NHCC members. Admission is free for children 12 and younger

Thank you to our Performing Arts Season Sponsors Heritage Hotels and Resorts, the Albuquerque Journal and Southwest Airlines!

Film: Con el viento/Facing the Wind

7 pm

Con el viento honors the filmmaker’s grandparents’ village, and the disappearance of its culture with their passing, while examining the issue of uprooting in all its complexity. After 20 years away in Buenos Aires, Mónica, a dancer and choreographer, receives a call that her father is dying and must return to the remote village in Burgos, Spain, where she was born. When she arrives, her father has already passed away and her mother asks her to stay and help her sell the family home. As winter sets in—a time of perpetual silence and extreme cold—the mother and daughter, now strangers to each other, seek to reconcile while lacking the words to do so. Presented in partnership with Instituto Cervantes as part of the Bank of America Free Thursday Film Series.

2017; Meritxell Colell Aparicio; Spanish with English subtitles; 108 minutes; not rated.

Free ticketed event; tickets available one hour before show
