UPDATE: The lecture by neuroscientist Richard Davidson scheduled for this evening, Feb. 13, has been postponed due to weather-related travel difficulties.

The master class scheduled for the morning of Feb. 14 is also postponed, as are all other activities on campus related to Davidson’s scheduled visit.

This is a postponement and not a cancellation; we hope to announce a date soon rescheduling Davidson’s visit to campus.

The Empowerment, Unity, and Traditions Behind Flor de Toloache's Mariachi Fusion - She Shreds Magazine

"The long, rich tradition of mariachi music functioning as a voice of national pride and political protest serves to counter that. In “Performing Nationalism: Mariachi, Media and the Transformation of a Tradition (1920-1942),” Donald A. Henriques, PhD, points out that the Mexican government bolstered Mariachi music as a symbol of Mexican cultural identity following the Mexican Revolution. Mariachi music also served as an unofficial soundtrack for the U.S. Chicano movement (or El Movimiento) in 1970s America. Recently Mariachi has been used as a means of protest against US cities and states that have vehemently opposed the notion of sanctuary cities; to speak out against gentrifying rent hikes that push Mexicans out of their homes; and as a way to command the attention of local politicians who were willfully ignoring Latino community members."

NYC's first all-woman mariachi band Flor de Toloache talks about cultural fusions, the spirit of protest, traditional instruments, and more.
