    Noche Azul: La Catrina

    On November 14 Azul Barrientos' musical performance will focus on La Catrina. La Catrina is an image made famous by Jose Guadalupe Posada. La Catrina is a female skeleton that is used to mock the wealthy. She is now a common symbol of Dia de Los Muertos. 

    Seating is on a first come first served basis. Concessions will be sold and the concert is open to all ages.

    ABOUT AZUL: Azul Barrientos, a popular San Antonio musician and performer, was born in Mexico City, Mexico. Professionally trained, and inspired by her parents and singers of old, she has been the artist-in-residence at the Esperanza Center since 2007. Throughout her life she has used her music as a way to make political statements and give voice to various social justice issues. From singing about women in the Mexican Revolution, to sharing the story of the 43 student teachers from Ayotzinapa who went missing in 2014 in Mexico, Azul’s style and message vary with every Noche Azul concert.
