Generación to perform at Keller Hall

The musical group GENERACIÓN, from Villarrica, Paraguay, will perform Monday, Nov. 10, at 7:30 p.m. at Keller Hall in the UNM Center for the Arts. Co-sponsored by the Division of Student Affairs, Accessibility Services, El Centro de la Raza, the International Center, and Special Programs, the event features a musical group renowned in South America for its recordings and performances of traditional music from Argentina, Chile, Peru and Paraguay.

As part of a campus initiative to increase student and community awareness of and interaction with diverse international cultures, GENERACIÓN’s performance will feature four voices, two guitars, piano and a traditional accordion-like instrument, the bandoneon.

The five-member group has won many international awards recognizing excellence as transmitters of traditional music and for stellar performances through their 20 years together as a musical ensemble. Paraguay’s VIDA Magazine recently reported that “the music that GENERACIÓN plays brings infinite pleasure” to audiences.

After the performance, a reception will be held to allow audience members the opportunity to meet the group and sample native Paraguayan foods.

Tickets can be purchased at the UNM Center for the Arts. They are $7.50 for general admission, $4.50 with a student I.D.

For information or to purchase tickets by phone, call 277-4569.
