About Azul Barrientos
A musician originally from Mexico City and now based in San Antonio, Azul works to conserve and develop the folk music that she was first introduced to as a child. Having learned and continuing her study of the rhythms and stories of previous generations, Azul rejoices in her Latina roots and gives life and meaning to the narratives of Latin American history by highlighting the many cultural influences and interconnections between the Americas, Africa, and Spain. Beginning her musical trajectory at an early age, Azul witnessed her parents’ nightly rituals of harmonizing with each other. Her mother provided the vocals and Azul’s father the guitar melodies. Through this exchange, Azul learned the beauty of music between family members and loved ones.
