What are you? I’ve been asked that question on both sides of the border. The Mexican American experience, with all its cultural complexities, isn’t always easy to understand.
Through music, though, multiple Grammy winners Los Lobos have let listeners into their own Mexican American experience. Now, the veteran musicians want to pay homage and educate audiences about influential Mexican Americans throughout history in a special performance at 8 p.m. Feb. 11 at Bass Concert Hall.
The can’t-miss show promises to be a moving performance bringing together music, imagery and dance. Joining the living legends on the stage for the “Fiesta Mexico-Americana” show are special guests Ballet Folklorico Mexicano.
The California-based Ballet Folklorico Mexicano, which was founded in 1967, will present everything from traditional to contemporary choreography. For more than 20 years, the dance group has served as a cultural ambassador for the Mexican consulate in San Francisco.
Tickets for the performance, which will celebrate Mexican American heritage, range from $10-$48. Visit texasperformingarts.org for more information.
