Huehuetl Performers Thursday Evening At Quinta Mazatlan

Huehuetl artistic musicians, all the way from Guadalajara, will be performing at Quinta Mazatlan on Thursday, October 18th, 6 pm to 7 pm.  Guests of all ages will enjoy a melodic journey into the past outdoors in McAllen, Texas.  Tickets will be at the Quinta Mazatlan gates for $5.00 per person.
The performers are second generation of Huehuetl, raised in the tradition of their parents.  Their paternal lineage is that of ceremonial music makers.  For generations their ancestors created and played instruments used only for sacred indigenous ceremonies.  All the instruments were handed down by family members and made from the earth and her sacred animals.  The costumes themselves are considered sacred ceremonial regalia.

The Aztec culture used a variety of wind and percussion instruments to make music.  Most popular wind instruments included clay flutes and conch shell trumpets.  Aztec percussion instruments included rattles, rasps, shakers and a variety of drums.  The most important of these was the huehuetl-a large vertical hand drum covered with stretched animal hide.
The McAllen Nature Speaker Series takes place Thursday evenings through April 2013 and is proudly sponsored by Thurmond Eye Associates.  The program fee is $5 per person and no advance reservation is required. Quinta Mazatlan, the McAllen Wing of the World Birding Center is located at 600 Sunset in McAllen, one block south of La Plaza Mall on 10th Street.
