Nortec Collective Documentary

A free public screening of the documentary “Tijuana: Sonidos del Nortec” will be held at 6 p.m. Friday, Nov. 22, in the Great Room, room 123, of the Global Scholars Hall on the UO campus, followed by a Q&A with Ramón Amezcua (Bostich) and Pepe Mogt (Fussible).

The full band’s first visit to the Pacific Northwest is sponsored by the College of Education’s Department of Education Studies and numerous other organizations at the University of Oregon, including the Department of Romance Languages.

Edward M. Olivos, a professor in the Department of Education Studies at the College of Education, was instrumental in bringing the group to Oregon. Although cultural sensitivity and appreciation is a key part of his program’s curriculum and a focus of many other organizations on campus, Olivos thought it was important to provide an authentic and fun event to promote these ideas.

“Misperceptions about Latin music often mirror those about Latino culture in general – narrow or old-fashioned at best, stereotypical at worst,” said Olivos. “Hosting Nortec Collective is a great way for us to show the community how modern, vital and relevant Latino culture is. Music can help shift perceptions through the shared cultural experience, particularly the music that is created along the U.S./Mexico border.”

Spanish Prof. Pedro García-Caro and Music Prof. Juan Eduardo “Ed” Wolf will offer some opening remarks at the start of the show on Friday.
