PLAYlist Concert Series: Raices, Rutas y Ritmos
PLAYlist Concert Series – Raices, Rutas y Ritmos
Raíces, Rutas, y Ritmos highlights the importance of music-making among Latin American migrants in North Carolina, as well as the prominence of Latin American-derived music in the Triangle area. Tonight’s featured artists: Trio Huasteco, Ancestor Piratas, Latin Beats and Wesley Noog. The Raíces, Rutas y Ritmos Project shares how music is at the center of the way migrant communities adapt to new life conditions, maintain relationships with their places of origin, navigate shifting social circumstances, cultivate and share new ideas of home and belonging–a mix of genres, languages, bodies, and stories celebrating the roots, routes, and rhythms of Latin American migrants in North Carolina. This event is made possible with funding and support by Duke Office of Durham & Community Affairs, Romance Studies, The Spanish Language Program, The Duke Center for Latin American and Caribbean Studies, and Artist Studio Project Publishing LLC.
