Download Imaginaries by Quetzal

Posted on: Mar 13, 2012 @ 11:44:43 am

Imaginaries performed by Quetzal is the featured World Music download.

The music of Quetzal is at once visceral and intellectual. It makes you move, it makes you sing, and it makes you think. Sometimes thought of as a rock band, its members draw from a much larger web of musical, cultural, and social engagement. On Imaginaries, they creatively combine shades of East L.A.’s soundscape, traditional son jarocho of Veracruz, salsa, R&B, and more to express the political and social struggle for self-determination and self-representation, which ultimately is a struggle for dignity. 12 tracks, 55 minutes, 40-page booklet with bilingual notes.

Alexander Street and Smithsonian Folkways Recordings offer this free music download from the popular online collection Smithsonian Global Sound® for Libraries. This download is freely available, regardless of whether or not your library subscribes to the collection.
