A special thanks to Mrs. Cleo Kamelhar for the use of her husband, Murray Kamelhar’s History of Mexico documentary.

Using the voices of four actors and 334 slides, the personalities, artists, and events from the Olmecs to the present come alive in the History of Mexico.

The heroic Mexican people survived their victories and defeats triumphantly with overwhelming odds through tragedy and determination. The History of Mexico covers a period of more than three millennia. First populated more than 13,000 years ago, the territory had complex indigenous civilizations before being conquered by the Spanish in the 16th century. One important aspect of Mesoamerican civilization was their development of a form of writing, proving that Mexico’s written history stretches back hundreds of years before the arrival of the Spaniards.

Sergio Basurto plays masterfully, achieving a perfect harmony between technique and emotion, reconciling the voices of the past that emerge from the harp made of timbó wood, allowing Basurto to create the intense passion of Latin American music.

Flamenco is a style of singing attributed to the gypsies of southern Spain and Andalusia. It has developed from a mixture of style and musical forms from the various cultures that exist in this region—Islamic, Jewish, Indo-Pakistani, Byzantine, Roman, Greek, Celtic, and African cultures.

 

Concert

Gypsy Guitar

By Javier Estrada

Wed, Apr 5, 7pm

Sala Quetzal

Reloj 50A

100 pesos

Remote, sleepy eyes with a lost look on the vast horizon, wearing arrogant colors and wrapped in the music of the infinite hymn from the poor squeals of their wrecked carts, decorated by the sounds of the hoofs of their solitary horses, they entered these lands in the fifteenth century.

Where do they come from? So strange, so proud. While these women breastfeed their young, the elderly, more idle, wander these new paths. This is the price to pay to remain what they have always been, birds of passage, intrusive outsiders. Here, as in any other part of the world, the tribe will not have to give up their freedom. In this guitar concert, Javier Estrada will describe, with musical notes and poetry, the life of the Roma People. Do not miss this unique experience.
