Maferefun Orisha 125

Domingos en Arte: Maferefun Orisha, A Salute to the Saints

July 22

7:30 pm

Maferefun Orisha introduces the public to the pantheon of Afro-Cuban gods and goddesses. These saints—or Orisha—represent different aspects of nature and humanity. The first set of this performance showcases the Orishas through story, song, and dance. The Bataleros de Querque will sing traditional songs in Yoruban while playing the sacred batá drums, while the Odara Dance Ensemble will portray the different gods and goddesses through dance and costume. Hear and see Chango, the god of thunder and lightning; Ochun, the river goddess of love; Oya, the goddess of the wind; and more.

During the second set, the Odara Dance Ensemble and the Bataleros de Querque will perform and teach a set of Afro-Cuban folkloric dances, including the rumba, macuta, and son. Odara will ask for audience participation, so this will be your chance to learn these dances.

Domingos en Arte, a summer music and dance series presented by Melaza Music, AMP Concerts, and the National Hispanic Cultural Center, is a family-friendly summer event on Sundays in NHCC’s charming Patio Courtyard that features live music by a wide range of Latino artists, drinks, and delicious Latin cuisine.
$11 in advance, $14 day of show

Destination America Poster

Film: Destination America

7 pm

July screenings in the Bank of America Free Thursday Film Series continue Becoming American: A Documentary Film and Discussion Series on our Immigration Experience. This six-week series is a project of City Lore, a cultural center for the arts and humanities based in New York City. It is funded by the National Endowment for the Humanities as part of NEH’s Community Conversations initiative, and features documentary film screenings and scholar-led discussions designed to encourage an informed discussion of immigration issues against the backdrop of our immigration history.

The National Hispanic Cultural Center is one of 24 organizations selected nationwide to participate in the Becoming American project. The scholar/moderator for the screenings and discussions at the Center is Dr. Gabriel Sanchez, Professor of Political Science at the University of New Mexico. The theme for Unit Four, presented on July 26, is “Help Wanted: Immigration and Work.”

“If you could get here, you could stay.” In Episode 1, “The Golden Door,” of Destination America, historians Donna Gabaccia and Janet Nolan provide an historical context for America’s long-conflicted relationship with immigrant labor. The film focuses on three groups: the Irish, who fled starvation at home in the mid-19th century and penetrated the urban workforce and helped build America’s railroads; the Norwegians, who came to farm the Midwest when land ran out in their country; and the Mexicans, many of whom were recruited by American industry in the 1920s as labor for American mills and factories, and then expelled when no longer needed.
2005; Stephen Stept and David Grubin; English; 54 minutes; not rated.
Free ticketed event; tickets available one hour before show

Domingos en Arte: Changüi Majadero

July 29

7:30 pm

Plus: Inside Songwriting workshop with Changüí Majadero at 3:00 pm. More information here. 

Playing Cuban roots music out of East Los Angeles, Changüí Majadero is a blazing five-piece band that has honed a deeply informed and highly personal take on changüí, a surging Afro-Cuban musical tradition that took shape in the late 19th century on the eastern side of the island around Guantanamo. It’s one of the foundational styles that gave birth to son, salsa and timba, and in the hands of Changüí Majadero the music feels as fresh and intoxicating as a stiff shot of rum. Founded by guitarist/vocalist Gabriel García, an expert on Cuban tres guitar, the band brings Cuba’s country blues to new ears.

 

Domingos en Arte, a summer music and dance series presented by Melaza Music, AMP Concerts, and the National Hispanic Cultural Center is a family-friendly summer event on Sundays in NHCC’s charming Fountain Courtyard that features live music, drinks, and delicious Latin cuisine.

Advance $13, Day of Show $18
