Performing “Music with Roots” going back to the oldest of times in Africa and the Spanish landings in Cuba and Mexico, Sharon Katz & The Peace Train’s repertoire for this live streaming concert will take us on a journey across continents and styles and inspire us with hope for what’s possible as musical activists. From her years of anti-Apartheid activism in her home country of South Africa, to her barrier-busting work in Cuba and on the Mexican border, Sharon draws on traditional songs and rhythms to promote social justice.
Currently based in Tijuana where Sharon is working with youth in migrant shelters and those rescued from trafficking, The Peace Train’s Afro-Cuban-Mex band features Abraham Morales on bass, Ramon Cortes on drums, Alberto Corrales on flute, Daria Abreu Feraud on vocals, and Sharon on guitar and vocals.
