This event will examine music as a way to understand Latin America’s tumultuous politics in the second half of the twentieth century. In this period music played a crucial role in Latin American politics, underpinning revolutionary movements from Cuba to Nicaragua and generating global solidarity for the millions of Latin Americans across the region living under dictatorship.
The event will feature a performance of Latin American music from vocalist Nicholas Mulroy, accompanied by Toby Carr, including songs by Víctor Jara, Silvio Rodríguez and others. This will be followed by an open discussion led by academics from across Queen Mary’s Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences.
Refreshments will be provided.
