The Hispanic Caribbean Ensemble played their final concert of the semester recently outside a local market in Central Austin. The group performed a number of acoustic and electrified dance pieces in a casual setting for a public crowd. They played along with the Butler School's Tex-Mex Conjunto and Middle Eastern Ensemble for a comprehensive showing of the school's world music groups.
"The best part of the concert was when we saw all these people towards the last couple of tunes come up into the front and start dancing and moving around," said J.A. Strub, a doctoral student in Ethnomusicology who sang vocals and played a variety of instruments during the concert. "We saw interactions from people of all different generations."
