Intersections Concert Series Presents Quetzal and Martha Gonzalez – Art, Culture, and Inspiration from East L.A.

About the Event

Quetzal is a Grammy award-winning ensemble of highly talented musicians, joined for the goal of creating good music that tells the social, cultural, political, and musical stories of people in struggle. Martha Gonzalez (lead singer, percussionist, and songwriter) calls it an “East LA Chicano @ rock group,” summing up its rootedness in the complex cultural currents of life in the barrio, its social activism, its strong feminist stance, and its rock and roll musical beginnings. Besides being a rock band, the group and its members participate in a much larger web of musical, cultural, and political engagement. Damian DeRobbio will host and conduct a Q&A with the group after their performance.

“Quetzal are one of the most eclectic and inspiring bands that I have ever witnessed,” says DeRobbio. They rarely play San Diego and should not be missed.”
