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!

Salud y Sabor Celebrates Peru: Tradicional

11:30 am to 2:30 pm

Salud y Sabor is a free late morning/early afternoon of food, art, health, culture, and entertainment that celebrates our communities and connects families with nutrition, cooking, healthy lifestyles, and play. Once a month, community members gather for cooking demonstrations using fresh, locally grown ingredients, fun art and movement activities for kids and adults, health screenings, cultural exchange, and live entertainment.  Join us for free samples of local produce and special recipes. All activities emphasize traditional Latin American and Indigenous food and culture, basic information/free screenings from local Western and alternative health practitioners, and a vibrant atmosphere with art activities, storytelling, and live music.

This event is presented as a partnership between the NHCC, Agri-Cultura Network and Street Food Institute.

This event is free and open to the public

Domingos en Arte: Edmar Castañeda

July 21

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.

On July 21, a partnership with Outpost Productions and the New Mexico Jazz Festival brings Colombian-born harp virtuoso Edmar Castañeda to the courtyard stage. Castañeda has forged a unique musical path, bringing a wholly original voice to jazz and other genres, and taking the world by storm with his virtuosity and command of his instrument. A consummate collaborator, he has formed partnerships with Gonzalo Rubalcaba, Wynton Marsalis, and the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra, among others, and has performed at venues including the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, the Tanglewood Jazz Festival, and the 10th Annual World Harp Congress. “If you aren’t watching Castañeda in action, you might think you’re listening to an ensemble rather than a solo player…. Between both hands, you hear the overlapping polyrhythms of joropo, a complex, triple-meter dance from South America.” (Hartford Courant)

$20 w/ $5 discount for NHCC members and Outpost members; free for children 12 and younger

Cardboard Playhouse Presents Disney’s Aladdin, Dual Language Edition

August 2August 4
Albuquerque Journal Theatre 1701 4th St SW
Albuquerque, NM 87102 United States

7 pm—Friday
2 pm—Saturday & Sunday

Disney’s Aladdin, Dual Language Edition features the Academy Award-winning score from Disney’s animated classic, with lyrics in both Spanish and English and a revamped plot that creates dramatic necessity for the bilingual script. The story begins centuries ago, when the royalty of Agrabah spoke one language and the citizens another. Communication is impossible without translation—which is controlled by the evil vizier, Jafar. When the rebellious princess Jazmin and a delinquent street rat, Aladdin, meet in the marketplace, they find something special in one another. Together, they work to transcend the barriers between them, and, with a little magic, help create a better future for themselves and for Agrabah. This touching musical adventure will thrill both Spanish- and English-speaking audiences!

$10, $12, $15 w/ $2 discount for seniors, children 12 and under, and NHCC Foundation members
