Las Brujas Chicanas 

Bring your lunch and join the fandango, or celebratory communal gathering in which band members take turns singing, dancing, and playing. Las Brujas Chicanas is a son jarocho UNM-based music collective of students, faculty, and community members emerging from the Department of Chicana and Chicano Studies.

Son jarocho is a musical and dance genre with roots in Veracruz, Mexico, and a history shaped by Spanish, Indigenous, and African traditions. In the U.S., the tradition has gained traction due to its accessible, collective, and often politicized practice. Since 2016, Las Brujas have been cultivating this music through workshops and fandangos on campus. In June 2023, the collective will be performing in Paris, France, and this concert is a way for them to share what they are working on.

If you're interested in learning more and joining the group (no experience necessary), this concert is the perfect opportunity to meet and talk to them. 

REGISTER ONLINE here so the museum staff can plan to have plenty of refreshments.
