Join us on Wednesday, October 26, for La Bamba: Latinos in Vintage Rock, Pop, and Soul.
Local rock historian Richie Unterberger will present this curated video-program of Latino performers from the 1950s through the 1980s focusing particularly on Latino music from New York City, Los Angeles, Miami, San Antonio, and San Francisco. Included will be clips by artists such as Santana, Malo, Ritchie Valens, the Sir Douglas Quintet, Linda Ronstadt, Jose Feliciano, and Los Lobos, among others.
This program is presented in conjunction with the exhibition American Sabor: Latinos in U.S. Popular Music currently on view in the Skylight Gallery of the Main Library. American Sabor was created by Experience Music Project and organized for travel by the Smithsonian Institution Traveling Exhibition Service. The exhibition, its national tour and related programs are made possible by Ford Motor Company Fund.
