Ritmos y Remedios
*This Presentation is presented by an artist team from our 2022 Apprenticeships in the Folk & Traditional Arts Program*
Location: OLLU Chapel Auditorium (411 S.W. 24th Street, San Antonio, TX 78207)
Music lovers know the B Side of an album is where we find the little known gems that never got enough attention – the soulful stuff from an artist’s heart. At this special Latinx Heritage celebration, you’ll hear Ceiba Ili’s unique blend of indigenous beats and global rhythms woven together with words of wisdom and healing from Xelena González’ celebrated collection Lotería Remedios. Xelena will share new remedios inspired by images from a little-known lotería series that includes cards such as La Bruja, El Oso, Las Espuelas, and La Piñata. Ceiba will premiere new tracks from her forthcoming album, which features several guest artists in attendance. This event is the culmination of both artists’ Individual Artist Grants from the City of San Antonio Department of Arts & Culture. Arrive early to sign up for lotería games and a chance to win artful prizes. "¡Corre y Se Va!"
