Sounds of the peo­ple: Nues­tra Música

Pasatiempo - - RANDOM ACTS -

Ev­ery spring in Santa Fe, mu­si­cians come from around the state to play cor­ri­das, in­di­tas, ro­mance songs, and other forms of mu­si­cal sto­ry­telling — the tra­di­tional His­panic folk mu­sic of New Mex­ico — at Nues­tra Música at the Len­sic Per­form­ing Arts Cen­ter (211 W. San Fran­cisco St.), pre­sented by the Len­sic and the Span­ish Colo­nial Arts So­ci­ety. Many of the per­form­ers have been play­ing mu­sic since they were chil­dren, in­flu­enced by older fam­ily mem­bers who learned from pre­vi­ous gen­er­a­tions. This year’s event, on Fri­day, April 15, at 7 p.m., fea­tures Roberto Mon­dragón y Ami­gos, Frank McCul­loch y Sus Ami­gos, Cipri­ano Vigil y La Fa­milia Vigil, Brenda Romero with David F. Gar­cía, El Trio Jalapeño con An­to­nia Apo­daca — who is nine­tytwo years old — and singer Con­suelo Luz ac­com­pa­nied by Joaquín Gal­le­gos. The lineup was cu­rated by au­ral his­to­rian and writer Jack Lo­ef­fler with his daugh­ter, Ce­les­tia, and folk­lorist and mu­si­col­o­gist En­rique Lamadrid. Tick­ets, which are $10 (free to se­niors) and must be re­served, may be pur­chased on­line at www.tick­etssantafe.org or by call­ing 505-988-1234.
