Hoy Como Ayer: Generations of Latin Music

September 22 2011-March 24, 2012

Hoy Como Ayer, created in collaboration with City College of San Francisco’s Music Department, focuses on 4 styles of Latin Music: Samba, Corrido, Salsa and Afro-Cuban Music. As Professor Rebecca Mauleon, author of the exhibition text, points out, these are just a few of the many styles  within the pantheon of Latin music. The exhibition includes photographs by Stanley Lopez Padilla, student projects, LP covers, CDs and cassettes, handwritten musical scores by Inaudiz Paisan Mallet of Santiago de Cuba, photographs, books and musical instruments.

Check out these resources in the CCSF Library and do the assignment:
