Houston Arts Alliance's Folklife + Traditional Arts Program presents "¡UNO, DOS, TRES!: The Many Musics of Houston's Latino Community"


"Uno! Dos! Tres!: The Many Musics of Houston's Latino Community," presented in collaboration with Multicultural Education and Counseling through the Arts (MECA), Talento Bilingüe de Houston and KPFT 90.1 FM, is an innovative project centered on the musical traditions of emerging Latino communities in Houston.

"Uno! Dos! Tres!" is a three-concert series focusing on the expanding cultural traditions of Houston's newest Latino communities, residents from Central America, the Caribbean and South America. The presentations will include a half hour workshop with a 90-minute performance to follow. The project responds to the immigrant communities of Latino Houston, while offering an avenue of city-wide cross-cultural interaction through workshops and musical performances by excellent local ensembles of important hemispheric traditions.
