WOMEN MAKING MUSIC ACROSS BORDERS
This week during our first hour will be presenting ENTRE MUJERES: WOMEN MAKING MUSIC ACROSS BORDERS, and the second hour will be dedicated to the Mexican music of Son Jarocho
Entre Mujeres: Women Making Music Across Borders. Founded by musicians Martha Gonzales (GRAMMY® Award winning band Quetzal) and Laura Marina Rebolloso (Son De Madera), this collaborative project features original compositions by musicians from Los Angeles and Veracruz.
Its goal is to create community and make visible through song the voices, ideas, and trans local dialogues between women from both sides of the U.S.-Mexico border.
Featuring some of the city’s finest singers, Entre Mujeres cleverly blends traditional sounds of fandango with influences such as rock, jazz, blues, hip-hop, and African and Odissi rhythms. Presented in collaboration with the Smithsonian Folklife Festival.
