• Voices from Latin America Events

  • Welcome!

    From the irresistible rhythms of Afro-Cuban jazz to the sophistication of Brazilian samba, from the passionate intensity of Mexican rancheras to the infectious joy of Venezuela’s El Sistema social-action movement, Latin American culture has captured the world’s imagination. In Voices from Latin America—from November 8 through December 11, 2012—Carnegie Hall pays tribute to these cultures that have fueled the world’s imagination in a citywide festival.

    Under the guidance of Osvaldo Golijov (holder of this season’s Richard and Barbara Debs Composer’s Chair), Carnegie Hall has invited three internationally acclaimed performers to curate series of concerts that spotlight their vibrant musical cultures—singer-songwriter Gilberto Gil and Brazilian popular music, pianist-composer Chucho Valdés and Afro-Cuban jazz, and conductor Gustavo Dudamel and El Sistema in Venezuela.

    In addition, a citywide celebration of Mexican music and culture will be presented in partnership with Celebrate México Now, culminating in a tribute to legendary singer Chavela Vargas at Carnegie Hall.

    With more than 60 events, the festival includes music, dance, film, art, photography, and more. Voices from Latin America includes four weeks of events and exhibitions at Carnegie Hall and partner organizations throughout the city.
