DOMINGOS EN ARTE:
NHCC’s Summer Music and Dance Series Announces Its Second Season

Domingos en Arte, a summer music and dance series presented by Melaza Music, AMP Concerts, and the National Hispanic Cultural Center in the NHCC’s Fountain Courtyard, enters its second season beginning in June. We have invited some of our musician friends, from the local community and outside, for lively community get-togethers right next to the beautiful Rio Grande Bosque. Spend Sunday evenings from 6 PM to 10 PM enjoying live music, drinks, and delicious Latin cuisine with family and friends in this enchanting courtyard setting, with one or all of the groups who will be performing this season. Admission is free for children 12 and younger; tickets are available from the NHCC Box Office, at (505) 724-4771, or at nhccnm.org.

A special mid-week performance in the series features TradiSón, the house band at La Bodeguita del Medio restaurant in Havana, famous for a storied clientele including Ernest Hemingway and Pablo Neruda. The band, as its name suggests, specializes in the son, a musical form that combines Afro-Cuban rhythms and Spanish melody, while performing other lively Cuban musical genres such as guaracha, guajira, and bolero.
Tickets $17.

Full Calendar:
Sunday, June 4, 2017 — Baracutanga (Nuevo Mexico)

Tickets $12.

Sunday, June 18, 2017 — Lone Piñon, Otilio Ruiz and Chuy Martinez (Nuevo Mexico)

Acoustic trio Lone Piñon, from Santa Fe, celebrates the diversity of their region’s cultural roots. Reviving and updating the Chicano string band style that once flourished in New Mexico, they bring their consummate musicianship to northern New Mexican polka and chotis, Mexican huapango and son calentano, and classic borderlands conjunto. They are joined by veteran Albuquerque musicians Chuy Martínez, a guitarist, singer-songwriter, folklorist, and community cultural worker, and Otilio Ruiz, a virtuoso harpist, music teacher, and director of La Rondalla de Albuquerque.
Tickets $12.

Sunday, July 2, 2017 — Mariachi Flor de Toloache (NYC) and Los Texmaniacs (San Antonio)

Grammy-winning Los TexManiacs, a conjunto band created by Albuquerque’s Max Baca in 1997, is joined by Grammy-nominated Mariachi Flor de Toloache, from New York. Los TexManiacs incorporates elements from genres including rock & roll and jazz, while still honoring the roots of Tejano conjunto; their album Borders y Bailes won the 2010 Grammy Award for Tejano Album of the Year. Founded in 2008, with members from a wide variety of national and cultural backgrounds, Mariachi Flor de Toloache is New York City’s first and only all-women mariachi group, offering an edgy, fresh take on traditional Mexican music.
Tickets $17.

Sunday, July 23, 2017 — Los Hacheros (Brooklyn, NYC)

Brooklyn’s Los Hacheros are modern-day torchbearers of the Golden Age of Latin music, reviving folkloric styles like son montuno, guaracha, and salsa, and often combining them with bomba, a fiery rhythm from the mountains of Puerto Rico. Their debut album Pilón was acclaimed for “…its solid arrangements and lively original songs [that] have impressed old-school salseros and young music fans alike.” Their sophomore album, Bambulaye, was recorded live to vintage analog tape, giving it a raw, warm sound similar to that of the Latin legends who have inspired the group.
Tickets $17.
