Música norteña: Santa Fe Band­stand

Pasatiempo - - RANDOM ACTS -

The mu­sic of the viejos — or “old-timers”—is alive and well on the Plaza with leg­endary norteña mu­si­cian Antonia Apo­daca. Now ninety-three years old, the ac­cor­dion player graces the band­stand stage on Thurs­day, July 27, with a 30-minute set at 6 p.m., fol­lowed by a solo per­for­mance by fel­low His­pano folk singer and deputy state his­to­rian Robert Martínez at 6:30 p.m. Martinez takes lis­ten­ers through a sam­pling of tra­di­tional lo­cal styles, in­clud­ing al­aba­dos,

al­a­ban­zas, in­di­tias, and cor­ri­dos. Cipriano Vigil, who grew up in Chamisal, New Mex­ico, and can play more than 50 in­stru­ments, takes the stage with fam­ily mem­bers at 7:15 p.m. Ad­mis­sion is free. For more in­for­ma­tion, visit www.santafe band­stand.org. — J.L.
