Arturo O'Farrill's "An Evening of Fandango and Afro Latin Jazz"

  • Symphony Space 2537 Broadway New York, NY, 10025 United States (map)

Fandango at the Wall tears down three types of wall: (1) physical walls, as we recorded musicians on both sides of the San Diego and Tijuana border; (2) musical walls, as we invited special guests from different musical traditions such as jazz, classical, Broadway, hip hop, san jarocho; and (3) recording borders, as we recorded both outside in the live environment and also in a recording studio.

What is more, this project has several formats: (1) the music album released by Resilience Music Alliance; (2) a book on the history of United States-Mexico (with a foreword by historian Douglas Brinkley and afterword by Ambassador Andrew Young) released by Hachette Audio & Grand Central Press; (3) and a documentary which is in the works, that focuses on the lives of the son jarocho musicians.
