The Conjunto Archives

I love to listen and dance to Conjunto music. Here are some videos I shot to preserve the history of some of these performances. I owe thanks to my friends, Susan Torres, Clemencia Zapata, Kiko Villamizar, and Bradley Williams, who have welcomed me into their community and whose passion for the music has inspired my own artistic endeavors.
