Pan-Hispanic Ballad Recital by Tomas Lozano
The Folklorist, Musicologist, and Performer Tomas Lozano will be performing a series of early ballads in Spanish at the Ethnic Cultural Theatre on Saturday April 23, 7-9PM.
Tomás Lozano, originally from Spain, is a multilingual folklorist, singer, musician, and international lecturer with a focus in ethnomusicology. He specializes in Medieval, Renaissance, Sephardic, and traditional music from Spain. His solo performances regularly feature oral Hispanic 'romances' from the fifteenth century to the present.
After relocating in the US, Lozano established and directed Crisol Bufonsan internationally recognized New Mexico-based non-profit organization that provided cultural and pedagogical performances across the U.S. largely to underprivileged communities. He founded and performs regularly as a member of various ensembles (Crisol Luz, Viva la Pepa, Trio Lococó). Another of the fruits of Lozano's move to the American Southwest is his recent book Cantemos al alba. Origins of Songs, Sounds, and Liturgical Drama of Hispanic New Mexico (UNM Press, 2006), an innovative study and vast repository of information about New Mexico's Hispanic traditions and their direct link to medieval Spain.
Lozano sings and plays guitar, Spanish lute, hurdy-gurdy, and the Galician tambourineall instruments that will accompany the troubadour in his April 23 performance of traditional Spanish Ballads at the Ethnic Cultural Theatre.
