Center for the Arts in Society Lecture
Allá in the Mix: Listening Like a Sonidero
Josh Kun, USC Annenberg School for Communication & Journalism
This talk will join conversations taking place in the Center for the Arts in Society’s “Listening Spaces” project by exploring contemporary musical practices of mobile Mexican DJ sound systems, or sonidos. Operating on both sides of the US-Mexico border, sonidos use the DJ mix as a form of musical communication and community that both moves between the US and Mexico and plays a role in shaping cross-border migrant politics and activism.
