Las Flores del Valle

Two for the price of one

A New Mexico women’s duet, Las Flores del Valle, is performing a free virtual concert from the Albuquerque Museum in tandem with the traveling exhibit Frida Kahlo, Diego Rivera, and Mexican Modernism, where it takes place. Carol Vigil and Leila Flores-Dueñas take their inspiration from the many hermanas duos whose smooth harmonies became popular in the 1950s and ’60s and continue to influence contemporary Mexican and Southwestern music. Las Flores del Valle’s mission is to help preserve cultural traditions such as the corridos (songs that tell a story) and raise awareness of women’s roles in borderland music. Stream the concert at 6 p.m. Thursday, March 18. It’s free with a donation option. ampconcerts.org
