This event will be streamed from the AMP Concerts Facebook Page
The New Mexico Department of Cultural Affairs (DCA), in partnership with our state museums, historic sites, and cultural institutions, announces a series of free virtual concerts on Friday evenings featuring musicians living in New Mexico.
This is the seventh performance of the DCA's "Our Fair New Mexico" virtual concert series. It features Carlos Medina Mariachi and is hosted by the New Mexico Museum of Art.
This concert is underwritten by the New Mexico Museum of Art and produced by AMP Concerts.
While all our concerts are on hold, AMP Concerts is reaching out to local artists to give them work and give you entertainment in these difficult times. AMP maintains a fund to pay for community projects, which have primarily been school programs and artist residencies. In this time of crisis, we are using those funds to hire local artists and tech crews to create streaming events—and to act as a catalyst for the community to support art as well.
Everyone performing and working on the show is being paid. There will be no audience, just musicians, sound and video people who will follow social distancing guidelines.
Singer, songwriter, comedian and actor Carlos Medina was born in Las Vegas, NM. Carlos performs throughout the Southwest with his acoustic trio, 4-piece conjunto and Mariachi. His one-man comedy show featuring his alter ego, Graviel de La Plaga, entertains his fans during the music breaks.
Most of Medina's repertoire consists of original music based on life experience. Medina's comedy is based on his life, growing up in Northern New Mexico with his aunty gramma Lola and his cousin brother DonnaMick.
