Free event in Puyallup features Latino educator

The News TribuneJanuary 27, 2014 

The Puyallup School District and Humanities Washington will host a conversation with musician and educator Antonio Davidson-Gomez. His talk, “Mapping Latino Musical Migrations,” will allow participants to play instruments and literally connect the dots on a map to see how Latinos have contributed to American popular music, from salsa to hip-hop.

The free event is from 4:30-6 p.m. Thursday at Stewart Elementary School, 426 Fourth Ave. NE, Puyallup.

Davidson-Gomez is the educational services manager at KCTS-9 public television in Seattle. He developed bilingual programming for Vme, the Spanish-language sister network of PBS. He also wrote the online teacher course for the EMP Museum’s “American Sabor: Latinos in U.S. Popular Music” and developed a world-music class combining cultural study with music and ethnography.
