Los Chigualeros celebrates the music of one of Ecuador’s most famous orchestras. Chigualeros, founded almost three decades ago, fuses different sound like son, marimba, guaracha, currulao, bolero, and the chigualo. Like many parts of Latin America, Ecuador has an African history that is evoked through the mix of sounds in the music of Chigualeros. The film presents the lives of the orchestra members while also exploring topics of deforestation and environmental degradation in the region. $4 or free with student ID. Sponsored by Ackland Art Museum and the Institute for the Study of the Americas in celebration of Black History month.
