    Noche Azul de Esperanza: Juan Gabriel

    Join us for our monthly Noche Azul concert. This month's theme is Juan Gabriel, a concert dedicated to one of the most prolific Mexican composers and singers of all time! His flamboyant style and performances broke barriers all over the world. Bring your familia, amigxs, and/or partners to this concert and enjoy the show together!

     

    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.

     

    Noche Azul de Esperanza is our ongoing series of intimate cafe style performances with acclaimed singer/songwriter Azul Barrientos. Featuring a new theme and musical lineup each month, Noche Azul showcases traditional Mexican songs while highlighting the cultural influences and interconnections between Latin America, Spain and Mexico. The songs and genres of Noche Azul have included boleros, rancheras, folk music, jazz, as well as electronic music.
