Spaces of Exile, Music of Unity: The Arrival of Salsa in the Heartland

Drawing from 20 years of personal and professional experience as a salsa and Latin jazz bandleader and percussionist, Pablo Sanhueza will present on the political and cultural significance of Afro-Latin music in the Midwest. The presentation will be part music demonstration and part historical overview. It will tell the story of the Latin American political exiles and immigrants who arrived in the Kansas City region in the 1970s and 1980s, describing how they created spaces to remain connected to their shared culture through music and dance. Sanhueza, who arrived to Kansas City in 1996 from Chile, continues the work of this first generation of organizers and artists. Kansas City Latin Jazz Orchestra executive director and historian Cynthia Ammerman will sometimes serve as copresenter.
