In keeping with the recent celebration of Frida Kahlo’s 110th birthday, the Esperanza Peace and Justice Center will present Noche Azul: “Frida & Esperanza,” to honor the life and work of the late Mexican artist. Performers and frequent collaborators Aaron Prado and Azul Barrientos will take the stage for two performances this weekend, sharing original music and tangos written specifically for Noche Azul. Part of the Esperanza Center’s Arte y Corazón program, Noche Azul is an ongoing series of performances showcasing music from Latin America, Mexico and Spain, covering genres such as bolero, ranchera, folk, jazz and electronic music. Recognized worldwide for her distinctive self-portraits, Frida Kahlo is an iconic figure who continues to inspire artists throughout San Antonio and across the globe. Prado and Barrientos’ musical tribute promises an intimate complement to Saturday’s sprawling Frida Fest.
