Viva Noche Azul!

After an internationally successful livestream launch in March, the Esperanza Peace and Justice Center's monthly Noche Azul concert series is back for another virtual entry this weekend.



This Saturday, Esperanza artist-in-residence Azul Barrientos will give an intimate café-style performance alongside percussionist Nina Rodriguez and cellist Emilio Alvarez, which will livestream on Facebook and YouTube for viewers to enjoy at home.


A native of Mexico, Barrientos specializes in Latin and Afro Latin styles of music. She uses her platform to address political and social justice issues, including the lives of women during the Mexican Revolution and the 34 missing student teachers from Ayotzinapa.

Barrientos' genre-crossing music includes everything from boleros and rancheras to electronic music, making each Noche Azul performance unique in sound and message.

7 p.m., Saturday, April 18, YouTube and Facebook, esperanzacenter.org.
