Musician David Garza will join Michael Crockett, host of KUT’s Horizontes, and Rich Garza, cofounder of the Pachanga! Festival, in a discussion of Austin’s Latin Music scene immediately follow the preview screening of Latin Music USA. The screening and panel are part of KLRU’s Community Screenings.
The purpose of KLRU Community Screenings is to use television programs to create discussion around important topics. Each month KLRU invites the community to come together to get a sneak peak at an upcoming show or series and to get a chance to connect with others. All programs will be free and open to the public.
KLRU’s first Community Screenings event is a preview of Latin Music USA on September 15 at KLRU’s Austin City Limits Studio. From Latin jazz and mambo to salsa, Tejano, Chicano rock, Latin pop and reggaeton, Latin Music USA tells the story of the rise of new American music forged from powerful Latin roots and reveals the often overlooked influence of Latin music on jazz, hip hop, rhythm and blues and rock ‘n’ roll — and on all of American culture. This documentary will be broadcast on KLRU in October.
