    SuddenRush in Concert

    SuddenRush in Concert

    These five siblings got their start playing in various other bands in the Vancouver music scene before joining together to form SuddenRush. Their sound is a seamless blend of Hmong sentimental song style and epic country rock, which works so well together it’s surprising more people haven’t thought to do it. The band had a break-through hit with their song “Mi Noog” in 2007, and has remained popular with Hmong audiences in Canada and the US ever since.

    Mariachi Arcoiris

    Mariachi Arcoiris

    Mariachi Arcoiris de Los Angeles prides itself on being the world’s first LGBTQ mariachi band. Their tight, energetic, and intricate sound has been honed by the work they’ve had to do to navigate the typically hypermasculine and heteronormative world of mariachi as gay and trans musicians. The band has performed at numerous gay and transgender pride events as well as in the #SchoolsNotPrisons tour for the California Endowment. They have been featured multiple times on Univision morning shows, and in the Smithsonian Folklife magazine. Series: "Critically Human" [Arts and Music] [Show ID: 37330]

    La Santa Cecilia in Concert

    La Santa Cecilia in Concert

    The band La Santa Cecilia, named for the patron saint of music, is dedicated to voicing the experience of a new bicultural generation in the United States. Their music is rooted in their Mexican heritage, but also inspired by traditions of bossa nova, rumba, bolero, tango, jazz, rock, and klezmer. They have made seven albums, and their 2013 release Treinta Días won the Grammy for Best Latin Rock Album (Alternative or Urban). They have also been nominated for two Latin Grammies, and their album El Valor was named one of the best of the year by NPR’s Alt Latino. Series: "Critically Human" [Arts and Music] [Show ID: 37329]

    Sallyswag in Concert

    Sallyswag in Concert

    Sweden is mostly known internationally for being a pop music powerhouse, but they also have an equally vibrant folk and world music scene less well known to the outside world. Sallyswag is a nine-woman power band that has taken that scene by storm, weaving together its roots in dance hall, Balkan, R&B, Swedish folk, hip-hop, and afro-beat to create an entirely original sound that’s been electrifying audiences since their foundation in 2014. They took home the Newcomer of the Year award at the 2015 Swedish Folk and World Music Gala for being a “refreshing suckerpunch” (approximate translation) and have been performing to rave reviews on their national circuit ever since. This was Sallyswag’s first concert for a North American audience. Presented by UC Merced UpstART. Series: "Critically Human" [Arts and Music] [Show ID: 37326]

    Music and the Border

    Music and the Border

    The US/Mexico border has served as a creative catalyst for artists for more than a century, but perhaps never more than now as barriers between both societies have grown. Join us for a lively discussion with three leading musicians on how they reflect on the border through their music, creating art that forges connections and common community. Moderated by radio journalist Betto Arcos, a regular contributor to NPR, BBC Radio 3 and LAs KPCC, the panel features Arturo OFarrill, multi-Grammy-winning composer, jazz pianist and Professor of Music at UCLA; Martha Gonzalez, co-founder and lead singer of Grammy award-winning band, Quetzal, and Associate Professor in Chicanox Latinox Studies at Scripps/Claremont Colleges; and Jorge Francisco Castillo, founder and director of the Fandango Fronterizo festival and leader of the cross-border son jarocho ensemble, Radio Guacamaya. Series: "Helen Edison Lecture Series" [Arts and Music] [Show ID: 35614]
