Lone Piñon is the 2022 recipient of a Robb Trust underwriting grant, for their project “Musica de los Manitos”. They recently delivered an invitational workshop with dancers from bailefolklorico and flamenco backgrounds, in which elders Reyes and Cordelia García (Pecos) and Lucy Salazar (Cañoncito) led participants through the entire repertoire of Northern New Mexico figure dances, with a focus on two endangered forms (el taleán and las cuadrillas). Attached is a video excerpt from the dance workshop. Upcoming events in the series will serve evacuees from communities affected by the Calf Canyon / Hermits Peak fire.
