My good friends up north at the Toronto-based Dos Mundos Radio have co-curated a month of wonderful programming for Hispanic Heritage Month. Check out the details below, and while you read, listen to a new track (“Wow“) by Boogat, whom Dos Mundos describes as one of “a handful of people who are actually trying to explore and redefine Latin American music in Canada.”
Dos Mundos Arts and Media will be celebrating Hispanic Heritage Month throughout the month of April of 2013 by programming exciting, forward-thinking arts and artists in the context of “breaking stereotypes with arts and culture’. This celebration is intended to make strong efforts to continue pushing the boundaries of people`s perceptions of Latin America and to also explore the idea of being Latin American in Canada.
Events for the month include ann April 2 screening of LAND IN REVOLT: IMPURE GOLD, the first installment of the environmental project by the ever-activist Argentine filmmaker Fernando Solanas tackling the plundering of underground resources and the ensuing contamination ending with Black Gold. Portraying stark reality full of scams, miseries, and corruption, Solanas targets the mining industry and open-air cyanide or explosives extraction of minerals and metals at the northeast of Argentina, and observes the reaction of the local public.
There is also a music showcase featuring alt-Latino experimental artists Helado Negro and Uladat. Taking place on April 5, these two artists play with musical genres more closely affiliated with the artful Pop Avant programming associated with the Music Gallery.
