This evening is a special celebration of Peruvian art and culture, presented in collaboration with the Museum of International Folk Art in conjunction with their exhibit Crafting Memory: The Art of Community in Peru.

One dramatic portion of the exhibit is street art from the Amapolay art collective.  MOIFA will be bringing screen printing artists Carol Fernandez and Fernando Castro of Amapolay to Santa Fe, where they will join 7 local artists for a week of collaborative art making and site visits. This exchange will culminate in a public celebration at the Railyard, where visitors can learn to screen print designs made during the week themselves (free, bring a t-shirt or bandana!), shop the artists' pop up market, and enjoy the music of La Chamba from LA. Local Peruvian restaurant Sabor Peruana will be on hand serving delicious Peruvian food, as well as Railyard staple Kebab Caravan food truck.

Participating local artists: Jamison Chas Banks, Heidi Brandow, Jimmy Coriz, Moira Garcia, John Paul Granillo, Juan Lira, Tim Jag and Manuel Ramirez, members of the Alas de Agua collective, and Baca Print Shop

Live screen printing is free and paper will be provided.  Bring a t-shirt, bandana, or bag and artists will help you screen print on it!

La Chamba is driven by electric guitar that fuses 60's psychedelic inspired surf-pop from Peru, with Afro-Latin rhythms. With roots in East and South Central Los Angeles, "Chamba" literally means "work," and is a word used throughout the barrios of Latin America to describe your hustle. Their sound pays homage to the melodies and grooves of Peruvian Chicha music popular among the working-classes of Lima and the Amazon. La Chamba encourages folks to let loose and release their grind on the dance floor!

"Chicha... is distinctly Peruvian, an obscure form that arose in the '70s from the shanties outside Lima. It was, in its earliest form, music played by working-class migrants from the jungles and mountains of Peru, banged out on cheap instruments at neighborhood parties. And, unexpectedly, the music has become one of the linchpins of L.A.'s thriving Latin alternative scene... 'What really called us to it was just the way that chicha was formed, the way it was treated in Peruvian society,' says Jason Zepeda, La Chamba's lead vocalist and conga player. 'It's the music of the lower class, of the working class. And we come from South Central and East L.A. We're first-generation college students, first-generation high school graduates. We come from marginalized communities, communities that have historically been socially disadvantaged. It made a lot of sense to us.'" (L.A. Weekly)

New Mexico Culture Squared (NMC2) is a NM Department of Cultural Affairs (DCA) project to build and manage partnerships between DCA institutions and cultural organizations that will enhance the impact, effectiveness, attendance, and visitor experience of exhibits and programs of DCA entities. Under the management of AMP Concerts, NMC2 will create programs in collaboration with State Historic Sites, DCA Museums and various cultural organizations with the goal of increasing public programs statewide and promoting New Mexico as a destination for arts and culture.
