Curated by USC Professor Josh Kun, this multi-part, multi-venue “musical exhibition” and accompanying catalog of essays explore the musical networks between Los Angeles and various Latin American communities and cultures.

Musical Interventions , organized by historian and professor of popular music Dr. Josh Kun, creates a multi-part “musical exhibition” exploring the musical networks between Los Angeles and various Latin American communities and cultures. Events will include a free outdoor big-band celebration of Latin American composers in Hollywood featuring the Mexican Institute of Sound at the Getty; a free concert of leading Latina vocalists paying tribute to Peruvian soprano Yma Sumac at the Hammer; an outdoor sound installation and performance by Guillermo Galindo at the Huntington Library, Art Collections and Botanical Gardens; a concert in UCLA’s Royce Hall honoring the Brazilian musical legacy in Los Angeles, including the classic funk album A Bad Donato; an imaginative updating of a traditional Spanish-language variety show; and a performance at LACMA of newly commissioned music from Los Angeles experimental rock band Chicano Batman, inspired by the paintings of Carlos Almaraz. Full descriptions of events, including dates and locations, will be available online in summer 2017.
