Oralidad Festival: Lara Manzanares & Joe Hayes
November 19, 2022
Lara Manzanares, a bilingual singer-songwriter with roots in Tierra Amarilla, will perform a joint show with master storyteller Joe Hayes. The performance will begin with a folk narration by Hayes aimed at adult and children, to be followed by a performance by the singer-songwriter. This show weaves together the past, present, and future of the oral tradition as well as the performers’ passion for blending cultures and the roots of New Mexico.
Instituto Cervantes, AMP Concerts, and the National Hispanic Cultural Center present the second edition of the Oralidad Festival. Oralidad is born with two essential purposes: to promote the oral tradition of storytelling and to establish a collaboration between artists from New Mexico, Spain, Latin America, and the rest of the United States to create new works together and contribute to the improvement of storytelling.
