Nueva Canción: the Folk Music Revival of Latin America
Performance-talk and jam with Prof. Colleen Kattau.
Nueva Canción is a movement of folk, folk-inspired, and socially committed music that originated in the 1960s and continues to this day. It is to Latin America what the Folk Music Revival of the 1960s is to North America.
Colleen Kattau, Associate Professor of Spanish at SUNY Cortland, is both a scholar and an accomplished performer of Nueva Canción. In this educational workshop she will present an overview of the movement, its origins, its development, and its impact, and she will illustrate her talk with a live performance.
After a short break, Prof. Kattau will lead a one-hour Latin folk jam. All instruments are welcome. No previous knowledge of either Spanish or Nueva Canción is required. For information please e-mail Steve Suffet at [masked] or call him at[masked]-1533.
General admission: $15. FMSNY members or full-time students: $12.
