In the Media: Professor Martha González Discusses Bolero in La Opinión

CLAREMONT, California - April 5, 2019

Assistant Professor of Chicana/o Latina/o Studies Martha González was profiled in La Opinión about her upcoming performance at LA Plaza de Cultura y Artes, the Downtown Los Angeles Mexican American cultural center. González discusses how she and her band, Quetzal, reimagine the traditional bolero form by integrating different instruments into the arrangements. Boleros are also a family tradition: González learned them from her father and, during the program, will be accompanied by her son. The performance, titled “Boleros de Noche,” will take place at 7:00pm; tickets are required.
