Inside Songwriting with Changüí Majadero Workshop

Albuquerque, New Mexico

FREE Changüí Workshop FREE Date: 7/29/18

Time: 3pm

Venue: National Hispanic Cultural Center

Address: 1701 4th St SW, Albuquerque, NM 87102

Join Changüí Majadero (before their performance for Domingos en Arte at 7:30) to learn about how they imagine, write and put music to lyrics. New York Music Daily describes the lyrics to the band's "Un Burro y un Elefante" as a "wry, spot-on critique of American politics" and "Pa Cuba Me Voy" as a "fearless political shout-out to the island." For Changüí Majadero, where does songwriting start? How does it make its way to music and song? Spaces for this free event are limited. Early reservations are definitely encouraged!

Changüí Majadero's performance is made possible in part by a grant from the Western States Arts Federation (WESTAF) and the National Endowment for the Arts.

New Mexico Culture Squared (NMC2) is a NM Department of Cultural Affairs (DCA) project to build and manage partnerships between DCA institutions and cultural organizations that will enhance the impact, effectiveness, attendance, and visitor experience of exhibits and programs of DCA entities. Under the management of AMP Concerts, NMC2 will create programs in collaboration with State Historic Sites, DCA Museums and various cultural organizations with the goal of increasing public programs statewide and promoting New Mexico as a destination for arts and culture.

Malawi's Zomba Prison Project compilation among BEST NEW WORLD MUSIC releases 

World music fans have always had a special fondness for Cuban music and now the recent thaw in relations between the United States and Cuba is bound to give the genre a huge boost. Fans who haven’t listened to much Cuban music since the release of the Buena Vista Social Club tracks will really be tickled by this set from the Los Angeles-based group fronted by singer and guitarist Gabriel Garcia. Changüí music is a forerunner to salsa and it is rich with the Caribbean rhythms that have their roots in parts of Africa. Garcia has a masters degree in Afro-Latin music, and what you have in this set is  dance music that instantly conjures an image of a sultry Havana night club where the bodies sway until dawn. While the emphasis is on rhythm and the dance floor, Garcia’s acoustic guitar playing, clear as a bell and flawless, is a melodic delight unto itself.
