Agustín Lira & Alma at the 2015 Smithsonian Folklife Festival
Agustín Lira & Alma chronicle the experiences and hidden histories of Chicano, Indigenous, and immigrant communities integral to California’s cultural fabric. They performed at the 2015 Smithsonian Folklife Festival's Ralph Rinzler Memorial Concert, an annual event that honors the legacy of Smithsonian Folklife Festival co-founder Ralph Rinzler and his support of “citizen artists.”
Agustín Lira & Alma will release a new album on Smithsonian Folkways in the coming year.
