AFROMUNDO FESTIVAL: MAROONS, REBELS, DREAMERS, AND VISIONARIES

AFROMUNDO FESTIVAL: MAROONS, REBELS, DREAMERS, AND VISIONARIES

Sat, Apr 13, 2024, 12:00am - Sat, Apr 20, 2024, 11:59pm

April 13th through April 20th
Various Locations
Hosted by AfroMundo (WEBSITE)
FREE to the public

Join the AfroMundo team for a weeklong, arts and humanities festival that explores the histories, traditions, literature, rhythms, cultural practices and ethnic and racial complexities of Latinidad.

Narratives are foundational to history, religion, culture, class, race; as well as to political, economic, educational, environmental, health policies and more. Yet the narratives of Afro and of African Americans have historically been overlooked and are in danger of being erased from libraries and curriculums. AfroMundo’s idea is that nuanced humanities conversations can and should take place within community.

This year's Festival themed Maroons, Rebels, Dreamers and Visionaries, employs literature, folk traditions, films, panel discussions, and demonstrations of religious and cultural practices to share diasporic narratives. This year’s programs highlight the diverse heritage, traditions, histories, aspirations and current conditions of life for Black peoples in Columbia, Costa Rica, Jamaica, and the USA. The festival seeks to promote a greater understanding of our shared humanity. All panels include question and answer sessions. Programs are in humanistic dialogue with others in the series to provide multifaceted perspectives.

For a comprehensive overview of the festival's array of events, we invite you to visit AfroMundo Festival 2024 and encourage your swift registration, as these events, while free and open to the public, are renowned for reaching capacity well in advance due to their wide appeal. Among the list of diverse programs and scholars, the festival concludes with distinguished musical artist Afro-Colombian singer and Grammy Nominee, Nidia Gongóra. You won't want to miss it or any of these events!

TRUTH, JUSTICE, AND THE AMERICAN: HOW COMICS ANIMATE CULTURE

TRUTH, JUSTICE, AND THE AMERICAN: HOW COMICS ANIMATE CULTURE

Tue, Apr 16, 2024, 5:30pm - 6:30pm

Presented by Jeff Benham
April 16th, 2024, 5:30pm. Hosted by the Los Alamos Arts Council (ADDRESS)

Modern comics are generally considered to have risen from sociopolitical cartoons around the turn of the twentieth century. Despite their "grown-up" inception, comics quickly came to be considered merely "kid stuff." Reflection on their actual history reveals comics to not only offer up a mirror of our fears and beliefs, but to in fact be an active force in the evolution of our culture.

Delight as the limits of creativity are shattered! Escape with the unexpected monsters of our dreams! Thrill as the Captains of America tackle the Axis! Tremble as Congress contemplates comics' delinquency! Raise a fist as The Man pulls comics underground! Celebrate as comics unloose the broad American voice! Squirm as comics struggle to define "created equal!" Look! Up in the Sky! It's not a bird! It's not a plane! It's comics fighting for us all! (And we don't always agree!)

THE WANDERING BALLAD

THE WANDERING BALLAD

Sat, Apr 27, 2024, 2:00pm - 3:00pm

Presented by Johanna and Scott Hongell-Darsee
April 27th, 2024, 2pm. Hosted by the Santa Fe Public Library (ADDRESS)

People have sung stories since times immemorial as a way to memorize and record history and myths. A kind of stone age database. The songs we today call medieval and traditional ballads have their roots among Nordic epic sagas, French romantic lays, Celtic lore and World mythology. As the songs have traveled, they have metamorphosed and melted into various musical traditions, weaving a world of fantasy and mystery.

Scott and Johanna Hongell-Darsee are a duo who perform early traditional ballads, songs and tales from Scandinavia, The British Isles and other parts of the world. Their performances blend both modern and traditional instruments in unique, original arrangements.

Their wanderings have led them from Finland and Iowa respectively - through Europe, Scandinavia, India, and North America. On the way they have picked up tales and songs that they perform together with the stories behind them, in particular exploring the links between these story singing traditions.
