Domingos en Arte: Lone Piñon and Lenore Armijo
June 17, 2018
Lone Piñon is an acoustic conjunto from Northern New Mexico whose music celebrates the diversity and integrity of their region’s cultural roots. Using violins, accordion, quinta huapangera, bajo sexto, guitarrón, tololoche and vocals in Spanish, English, Nahuatl, and P’urépecha, the group has revived and updated the Chicano string band style that once flourished in New Mexico, bringing a devoted musicianship to Northern New Mexican polkas and chotes, virtuosic Mexican huapango and son calentano, and classic borderlands conjunto.
Growing up in New Mexico, Lenore Armijo was exposed to a unique blend of music including jazz, ranchera and classical. Her own style has propelled her career onto various stages around New Mexico, and more recently in films such as “Descansos” and “Letters to Our Daughters.” Her recent appearances on stage include the live New Mexico Tour of “Bless Me Ultima,” written by Rudolfo Anaya, and “Living Purgatory,” written by Patricia Crespin.
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.
