839FW: Los Cenzontles Traditional Music Presentation at ACOE on April 7
- Apr 1 10:50 AM
I am forwarding you information on an event that will bring together musicians, dancers, parents, children and educators. I hope you and your children will join me at this showing of Pasajero, a feature length documentary with live performance of young Mexican American musicians in the Bay Area. This documentary has already been purchased by universities and school districts across the country. What an opportunity!
" Pasajero is a wonderful story about young people who reclaim their heritage. A musical odyssey. Pasajero successfully combines music with storytelling, creating a tale of a forgotten Mexican tradition told y the folks who lived it and the young peole struggling to reclaim their heritage." --Les, Blank, Filmmaker
"Pasajero, A Journey of Time and Memory breaks new ground in the documentation of ethnic music and its impact on cultural identity. It powerfully explores nascent transnational imaginaries and new forms of social convivencia." -Tomas Ybarra-Frausto, INdependent Scholar, NY
"It is a reminder of the vital role that music plays in defining our identities and helping us to understand who we are today in relation to our rich muti cultural heritage..." ---
