Los Cenzontles Touring Group Performs at the Kennedy Center and Library of Congress

Los Cenzontles performed on the Kennedy Center’s Millennium Stage and at the Library of Congress with support from the American Folklife Center. It was a wonderful recognition of our 30 years of promoting Mexican traditions.

Following our Kennedy Center performance, an interesting perspective was offered by Agustín Gutiérrez Canet in the online Milenio magazine: “Los Cenzontles, founded 30 years ago by Eugene Rodríguez in San Pablo, California, near San Francisco, is also an art academy where children of the Mexican diaspora learn the music and dance of their ancestors. The persistent work of cultural dissemination of Eugene Rodríguez and other groups in the United States deserves the support of the Mexican government, through the Secretariats of Foreign Affairs and Culture, so that the voice of the Mexican-American community is heard stronger throughout the country. In this country there are more than 36 million Americans of Mexican origin. Let the cenzontles sing, bird of the 400 voices, and the tweets be silent.”
