Música del Corazón: Una velada nuevomexicana (Music from the Heart: An Evening of New Mexican Music), a music event including a vast array of new and old music and genres, with ballads both medieval and modern, an ever-evolving lyric tradition, hybrid Indo-Hispano music, and an archaeology of vogues, from 18th-century court music to locally adapted música ranchera and evolving strains of pop.
This velada, sponsored by the UNM John Donald Robb Trust, is curated by UNM Professor Emeritus Enrique Lamadrid. University of New Mexico Distinguished Professor Emeritus Enrique Lamadrid and Associate Professor Ana Alonso-Minutti will moderate the concert. By looking at history, culture, artistic techniques, and intersectionality, a deeper understanding of this compelling music can be gained
