Imagine you’re a 36-year-old musician with a well-established career as a pianist, composer and music teacher. You have a name: Ignacio Hurban, and music albums to your name, but you always felt you might be someone else. So in 2014, and with the help of Abuelas de Plaza de Mayo (the group founded in 1977 by grandmothers of Argentina’s babies whose parents had been kidnapped and disappeared by the military dictatorship of 1976-83), Hurban submitted to a DNA test. The result confirmed his suspicions: he became “grandson #114,” the latest person recovered by the Abuelas, but there was a twist: he was also the grandson of Estela B. de Carlotto, the current president of Abuelas. The son of Laura Carlotto, who was 23 when kidnapped and died shortly after giving birth, and Oscar Montoya, his musician dad, the now-renamed Ignacio Montoya Carlotto continued his musical career and added San Antonio as one stop on his U.S. tour, just him and his piano (his latest jazz septet album, Sep7eto, was released in 2015). He’ll perform a mix of originals, tangos (anything from the classics to Astor Piazzolla) and Argentine folclore (think Cuchi Leguizamón). A short reception will follow the performance, but remember: you need to buy your ticket in advance via phone (number below). Tickets will not be sold onsite. $15 suggested donation, 7:30pm, Mexican Cultural Institute, 600 Hemisfair Plaza Way, (830) 613-6622, ignaciomontoyacarlotto.com. — Enrique Lopetegui
