Let the Rythm Give You Inspiracion
Well-known international artist in the music and art world will be making their way to Sam Houston State University for festival called “Festival Inspiracion”. The Festival Inspiracion is a one week festival that is focused on the Latin American cultures of the world. The event will be held from February 21-February 26. It will feature music, art, lectures and workshops that will educate those that are interested in the Latin American field.
The four artist that are headlining the event are:
Danilo Perez of Panama and Luis Marin of Puerto Rico, who performed with the late Tito Puente and other artists; Adelina Moya of Mexico and Jesus Moroles a sculptor from the USA. Both will be displaying their artwork in the Wynne Home museum. Moroles won the 2008 National Medal of Arts which is the highest honor in the art world and was presented by the President of the United States.
The brainchild behind the first ever latin festival that will be occurring here on campus is Dr. Sergio Ruiz, professor of music in the School of Music at Sam Houston State University. “I have been planning this for several years”, he said. “The plan was to bring the art, the music, the lectures, and the workshops together to make it fun and educational for everyone that attends.
This event will be one of the major events that will ever happen at Sam Houston State University because it will be bringing a huge exposure not only to the Latin American music scene, but to the culture of Latin America and it will inspire those to have a greater understanding of the Latin American people.
