Cultural Series presents Jose Condé

Jose Condé and Nu Latin Groove will bring funky Cuban rhythms to the New Mexico State University Atkinson Recital Hall at 8 p.m. Oct. 6.

Condé’s music fits into the powerfully danceable rhythmic system of Afro-Cuban music. He writes his own lyrics, with party flavor, humor and substance.

Condé expresses a personal commitment to nonviolence and preservation of the Earth, and his cosmopolitan vision of the Latin world is a hopeful one.

University Museum presents lecture by Enrique Salmón

The New Mexico State University Museum will present a lecture by Enrique Salmón at 6 p.m. Oct. 7.

Salmón is a part of the Rarámuri or Tarahumara culture. He has dedicated his studies to ethnobiology and traditional ecological knowledge to better understand his own and other cultural perceptions of culture, landscapes and place.

Salmón’s lecture will relate to the University Museum exhibit, “Dancing Under the Moon: A Portrait of the Rarámuri of the Sierra Tarahumara.” The Rarámuri, more commonly known by their Spanish name, Tarahumara, make up one of the largest indigenous groups north of Mexico City and have maintained many traditions. This exhibit features art and material culture, with photographs by Richard Speedy and objects from personal and museum collections.

The University Museum is located in Kent Hall at University Avenue and Solano Drive on the NMSU campus. Weather permitting, the workshop will be held in the museum courtyard.

For more information, call 575-646-5161.
