Son Como Son 25th Anniversary: A Retrospective Celebration of Salsa in Albuquerque, New Mexico

April 21
Albuquerque Journal Theatre
1701 4th St SW
Albuquerque, NM 87102 United States
+ Google Map

8 pm

This 25th anniversary concert is Son Como Son’s tribute to the rich lineage of Cuban music. It is a tribute to the dance—the dance between the Yoruban spiritual world and the Spanish colonialists, the dance between the past and the future, the dance where the ocean meets the desert. Most of all, it is a tribute to the dancers of Albuquerque—to each and every one who has buoyed this ship for the past 25 years and helped to put Albuquerque on the salsa map.
$24, $25, $27 w/ $2 discount for seniors/children 12 and younger, and $3 discount for NHCC members

Domingos en Arte: Lone Piñon and Lenore Armijo

June 17

7:30 pm

Lone Piñon is an acoustic conjunto from Northern New Mexico whose music celebrates the diversity and integrity of their region’s cultural roots. Using violins, accordion, quinta huapangera, bajo sexto, guitarrón, tololoche and vocals in Spanish, English, Nahuatl, and P’urépecha, the group has revived and updated the Chicano string band style that once flourished in New Mexico, bringing a devoted musicianship to Northern New Mexican polkas and chotes, virtuosic Mexican huapango and son calentano, and classic borderlands conjunto.

Growing up in New Mexico, Lenore Armijo was exposed to a unique blend of music including jazz, ranchera and classical. Her own style has propelled her career onto various stages around New Mexico, and more recently in films such as “Descansos” and “Letters to Our Daughters.” Her recent appearances on stage include the live New Mexico Tour of “Bless Me Ultima,” written by Rudolfo Anaya, and “Living Purgatory,” written by Patricia Crespin.

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.

Remember the Time

June 20
Albuquerque Journal Theatre
1701 4th St SW
Albuquerque, NM 87102 United States
+ Google Map

7 pm

Music has always been an integral part of the history of Barelas, and many of New Mexico’s well-known musicians have come from this community. In 2012, the NHCC partnered with the Barelas Coffee House to present the Rock ‘n’ Soul Show and Revue, then in its seventh year.  This event, showcasing great rock, soul, R&B and New Mexico rancherita tunes from the 1960s through the 1980s, recreated the touring shows performed in legendary Albuquerque venues during those years and provided a forum for the reunion of some of the city’s finest musicians from that era. In 2014 the Barelas Coffee House presented Oh What A Night, and in 2015 Cruizin’ Central, to sold-out houses; these were unique opportunities for family and friends to come together and listen, sing along, and dance to music from the 1950s through the 1980s. In 2016 and 2017, the first and second Remember the Time dance concerts brought back memories of happy times at venues such as the Civic Auditorium, Leo’s La Roc, and the Far West. This year’s concert, focusing on more recent decades, once again celebrates life, love, and music at its best with great Albuquerque musicians who have been entertaining New Mexico audiences over the years.  Featured bands are Picoso, Fat City, and Soul Divine, three dynamic local dance bands with dedicated fan bases.

Opened in 1978 as a precursor to the ongoing revitalization of the neighborhood, the Barelas Coffee House is itself an iconic Albuquerque venue and a popular local meeting place as well as a tourist attraction.  The NHCC is once again entering into a presenting partnership with the Barelas Coffee House, through owner Michael Anthony Gonzales, for the 3rd annual Remember the Time dance concert.
