Music Voyager is a lifestyle and travel multimedia broadcast series that invites viewers to discover a country, state or city through its culture, arts, cuisines, people, lifestyle, adventures and music, hosted by local artists who show the world “their” city. The 28-minute film features The Haunted Windchimes, a visit to a Pueblo chile farmer, locally produced chile inspired creations, interviews of numerous local artists, and various elements of local culture along the Pueblo Creative Corridor. The result? A tale of Pueblo as a growing hub of artistic expression in “Music Voyager, Sun City; Pueblo.”
The performers exemplify the diverse local music scene. The Haunted Windchimes delivers whimsically haunting folk and American tunes. Musical group Okolitza Tamburitzans exhibits the songs and dances of the Croatian and Slavic origins of the region. Resident dance group Grupo Folklórico Del Pueblo blends art, music, dance and history into their performances that represent the New Mexican and Mexican American experience.
