Confessions of a Radical Chicano Doo-Wop Singer: Book Talk by Rubén Funkahuatl Guevara

lectures-symposia, world-music
Lani Hall Watch Livestream

Rubén Funkahuatl Guevara is a native Angeleno Chicano musician, singer and songwriter, a record producer of Chicano rock and roll and rock en español compilations, and a performance artist, poet, short story writer, historian, journalist, and activist. His newly published book Confessions of a Radical Chicano Doo-Wop Singer (University of California Press, 2018) is a moving memoir of his life and a compelling counter-history of the city of Los Angeles.


“It is as if Rubén Funkahuatl Guevara, polymath Azteca warrior and Chicano superhero, rose with the first East Los Angeles Aztlȧn sun that gave creative light to the barrio.” – Louie Pérez, musician, songwriter with Los Lobos


Presented by The UCLA Herb Alpert School of Music Center for Latino Arts and The UCLA Chicano Studies Research Center.

Test Kitchen: Decolonize Music Theory through Multi-Sensory Writing with Nina Eidsheim and Juliette Bellocq
What if we listened to music with our tongue, feet, or skin? In this interactive event, we will experiment with multi-sensory experience of music. Engaging with a writing model from PEER Lab graphic designer Julliet Bellocq and founder Nina Eidsheim can help us relate to our senses more fully, and deepen our relationship with music and ourselves.
