Astrid Morales

We Continue our series about the 2019 Binational Journey for artists of Mexican ancestry based in the United States by The Mexican Government organization IME (Institute for Mexicans in the Exterior) where they invited 43 artists representing 36 states in the U.S. 

Music is an enormous part of human expression, and a crucial part of children's development. Astrid Morales, classical Pianist and participant in the Binational conference spends the hour telling us about her artistic expression which incorporates not only classical music, but a reimagining and merging of genres and practices of classical music, but also to stress the importance of helping youth gain an appreciation for music to maintain this important art alive. We chat about her experiences in the U.S. as a Latino artist. We also discuss the challenges of making a life as an artist in a post-COVID quarantine, and navigating the "new normal" in this climate. 

Astrid was selected among 43 others and attended a conference in Mexico City where they all met with government officials and had a chance to sample some of the amazing artwork and history that Mexico City offers, including over 150 museums, historical sites, and much more.

La música es una parte enorme de la expresión humana, y una parte critica para el desarrollo de los niños. Astrid Morales, Pianista Clasica y participante con la Jornada Binacional nos acompaña para hablar de su expresión artistica cual incorpora no solo a la musica clasica, pero para delinear la importancia de ayudar a la juventud a crecer en interes para la musica para mantener este arte importante vivo. Hablamos de sus experiencias en los Estados Unidos como un artista Latina. También discutimos los retos de hacer una vida como artista después de la cuarentena del COVID-19, y el navegar el "nuevo normal" en este clima. 

Astrid fué seleccionada de entre 43 artistas quienes acudieron una conferencia donde conocieron a oficiales del gobierno de México, y la oportunidad de probar un poco del asombroso arte que ofrece la ciudad de México, incluyendo a mas de 150 museos, sitios historicos,  y mucho más.
