The US/Mexico border has served as a creative catalyst for artists for more than a century, but perhaps never more than now as barriers between both societies have grown. Join us for a lively discussion with three leading musicians on how they reflect on the border through their music, creating art that forges connections and common community. Moderated by radio journalist Betto Arcos, a regular contributor to NPR, BBC Radio 3 and LAs KPCC, the panel features Arturo OFarrill, multi-Grammy-winning composer, jazz pianist and Professor of Music at UCLA; Martha Gonzalez, co-founder and lead singer of Grammy award-winning band, Quetzal, and Associate Professor in Chicanox Latinox Studies at Scripps/Claremont Colleges; and Jorge Francisco Castillo, founder and director of the Fandango Fronterizo festival and leader of the cross-border son jarocho ensemble, Radio Guacamaya. Recorded on 05/14/2020. (#35614)
