Join us for our monthly Noche Azul concert. Azul will be joined by her mother, Cuca, as they celebrate the beginning of Las Posadas. Las Posadas is a novena celebrated in Mexico and by Mexican-Americans in the United States, beginning December 16. Help us kick off the holidays with our final Noche Azul concert of 2017!
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 through multimedia storytelling and song. The songs and genres of Noche Azul have included boleros, rancheras, folk music, jazz as well as electronic music.
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.
Doors open at 7:30 PM. Tickets are $7 at the door, but any more donations are appreciated. Seating is first-come first-served. Concessions will be available for purchase.
