Time: Friday, November 22, 2019 6:00 PM - 7:00 PM

Location: Multicultural Center -Alonso Family Room

In this presentation, Intercultural Specialist Indra Leyva will talk about the music of the rock bands from Chiapas Mexico and their creation of “Batzi-rock”, a mixture of traditional indigenous music, rock and classical music, while using indigenous languages for their lyrics. Their music is a clear representation of when the local becomes global. She will look at their creative process as well as their marketing strategies to let their voices reach international markets.
