MUSIC: Los Cuñados de Tierra Caliente, traditiona
Los Cuñados de Tierra Caliente (The In-Laws of Tierra Caliente), celebrates traditional original music from Hispanic musicians in the New Hanover County area thanks to the efforts of Jeff Sanchez (El Gringo), Wilmington, NC. Sanchez was the station manager for the now-defunct WLGD, Wilmington’s first FM Spanish language station. In August 2010 Sanchez received a North Carolina Arts Council Folk Life grant to help fund the CD project, "Tu Mundo Ya No Es Mi Mundo"("Your World is No Longer My World") produced by Sanchez with the sounds of traditional musicians from Mexico.
“This Folk Life grant allowed New Hanover County to provide quality arts production for citizens of Hispanic descent, while also sustaining our local economy,” says Sanchez. “Perhaps this project will enable these local musicians to be able to make a living through the arts, and to maintain their cultural ties to their homelands. This also enriches the culture of southeastern North Carolina, exposing Americans to the rich cultural heritage of our neighboring country of Mexico.”
