On Friday, June 4, 2016, Los Cambalache performed live on the Brand Library & Art Center Plaza. Cambalache, meaning exchange, is a Chicano-Jarocho group based in East Los Angeles. Founded in 2007 and led by César Castro (sonero, maestro and luthier from Veracruz, Mexico), Cambalache plays and promotes traditional son jarocho through performance, music workshops, and educational demonstrations. In the spirit of the fandango, a traditional celebration of music and dance, Cambalache engages its audience through participatory performances. The performance was sponsored and made possible by the Brand Associates.
The program is part of a series programs taking place in conjunction with “Armenia: An Open Wound,” an exhibition presented by the City of Glendale, CA Glendale Library, Arts & Culture Department in partnership with the Armenian American Museum. The exhibition was curated by the Museo Memoria y Tolerancia in Mexico City. The exhibition will be on view at the Brand Library & Art Center from April 16 to June 11, 2016.
