Join Us for a Latino Music Concert this Friday!

Patricio Zamorano and his band of talented musicians will perform their energetic and committed Latino music in a concert titled “Through the Wall: Trova Music and Soul from the Southern Cone.” The concert will kick off at 7:30 pm this Friday, Sept. 21, at the Takoma Park Community Center Auditorium, 7500 Maple Avenue.

Through “trova” music, the band combines songs that get feet moving with music representing both the history and the present experiences of Latin America. The band also composes their own songs with lyrics focusing on solidarity, social justice, cultural identity, and the long struggle for dignity and a better life for all the peoples of the Americas.

El Salvador’s Ambassador to the United States Claudia Ivette Canjura de Centeno will be attending the concert and will share some of her thoughts.

The concert is free with a $10 suggested donation to support the performers. You can find more info here. We hope to see you Friday night!
