Originally from Mexico City, Azul Barrientos
works to conserve and develop the folk music that she was first introduced to as a child. Azul rejoices in her Latina roots and gives life to the narratives of Latin American history by highlighting the many cultural influences and interconnections between the Americas, Africa, and Spain. Beginning her musical trajectory at an early age, Azul witnessed her parents’ nightly rituals of harmonizing with each other. Azul will perform at the Yanaguana Stage at Luminaria 2018.
