Rumbo al’ Anacua to perform at Festival de Arte Popular
Joe and Rosa Perez are very talented musicians and very passionate and supportive of the arts and humanities of the Rio Grande Valley. I guess you can also say that they are headlining the Festival de Arte Popular: The Voice of Mexico, of the International Museum of Art and Science in McAllen.
Click below to read the press release from IMAS:
They are currently the artists in residence at the Narciso Martinez Cultural Arts Center and are also the producers/co-hosts of North of the Border, a radio program of Mexican roots music on KMBH 88.1. They also were guest speakers for the Fronteras Cruzadas symposium in March and will be guest speakers again for Tercera Cultura program this January. I am so glad that people like Joe and Rosa are active in our community.
The music is especially wonderful and I cannot help but tear up when I hear them perform. I even got to see a group dance to one of their songs "Jugas" at a Comadrazo retreat in July...and I don't think there was a dry eye in the patio.
I really recommend that you go see them perform at The Arte Popular Festival, which none the less is also an awesome event and exhibition to catch. For more info on Art Popular click here.
