Join International House as we partner with UChicago Presents and the Center for Latin American Studies as we present this virtual lunch discussion with Aurelio Martínez. Assistant Professor of Music Jessica Baker, an ethnomusicologist who specializes in contemporary popular music of and in the Circum-Caribbean, will be the host. Martínez, a musician and political activist, is a member of the last generation to grow up steeped in the indigenous Garifuna tradition, and in his music, for which he has received international recognition, he combines contemporary style with indigenous influences to share Garifuna with a new generation.
This event is free and open to the public, though registration is required.

This event is cosponsored by the Global Voices Lecture Series at International House, the Center for Latin American Studies, and UChicago Presents. With support from the National Endowment for the Arts and Arts Midwest.
