Asi es Nuevo Mexico.
In the towns of northern New Mexico and Southern Colorado people keep alive songs, tales, and a language dating back centuries. These are traditions indigenous to this region, known as Rio Arriba. What makes the traditional music and stories of the Rio Grande del Norte so unique? Folk masters of the Hispano culture from New Mexico share stories and songs learned from their grandparents. This is the first program in the series “Raíces: Songs and Tales of Rio Arriba”.
