!Soy Capitan! !Soy Capitan!

!Que Onda! Head on over to the Sac Central sometime before August 7th to see the American Sabor Exhibit, a very thorough examination of Hispanic influence in popular music.  Presented by the EMP (Experience Music Project) and the Smithsonian, the display is packed with information presented in a really fun way.  I learned that Sam The Sham is Mexican-American and not Egyptian at all!

It covers all different types of music, from my beloved Latin jazz master, Tito Puente

to the always fabulous salsa singer Celia Cruz

to psychedelia


and punk.


It is really worth checking out. And of course, like everything at the library, it’s gratis!
