The Museum of the City of New York is set to present Music and Mexican Immigrant Life in New York on Thursday, June 16 at 6:30 pm.
With the growth of New York’s Mexican population comes an increased presence of Mexican music, dance, and culture. Cathy Ragland, author of Musica Norteña: Mexican Migrants Creating a Nation between Nations (Temple University Press, 2009) traces the various styles of Mexican music that have become part of the city’s musical landscape.
Co-sponsored by the Center for Traditional Music and Dance.
