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/.
