AMP is happy to be collaborating with the Albuquerque Museum to help virtualize their popular Third Thursday Events. Each month, the museum has a mix of talks, activities and live music in tandem with their current and ongoing exhibits. We'll be taking care of the music part, but each evening consists of multiple programs.
This event is being held in conjunction with the Frida Kahlo, Diego Rivera and Mexican Modernism exhibit.
Carol Vigil and Leila Flores-Dueñas comprise a New Mexico women's dueto, whose smooth harmonies are reminiscent of the many hermanas duos that became famous during the 1960s. These groups helped form the lasting harmony structures of today’s U.S./Mexico Borderlands music scene. Las Flores del Valle have shared their talents at venues such as the Gene Autry Theater in Los Angeles and Universidad Pedadógica Nacional in México City, as well as the National Hispanic Cultural Center. This has allowed them to showcase their forte of preserving cultural traditions and Southwest history through the arts. They are also known for their presentations on life along the U.S./Mexico border, covering topics such as the role of corridos (stories told in song) in Mexican and Southwestern music, soldaderas of the Mexican Revolution, Día de los Muertos, and women’s roles in Borderland music.
