Allá in the Mix: Listening Like a Sonidero

Feb 17, 2014
4:30 PM  - 6:00 PM
Porter Hall 100


The Center for the Arts in Society presents Josh Kun of the USC Annenberg School for Communication & Journalism. This talk will join conversations taking place in the Center for the Arts in Society's "Listening Spaces" project by exploring contemporary musical practices of mobile Mexican DJ sound systems, or sonidos. Operating on both sides of the US-Mexico border, sonidos use the DJ mix as a form of musical communication and community that both moves between the U.S. and Mexico and plays a role in shaping cross-border migrant politics and activism.
