LA HORA MIXTECA: LIVE FROM THE CAPITAL. Filemón López, host of La Hora Mixteca, continues to broadcast live from the nation’s capital as part of Radio Bilingüe’s special coverage of the Smithsonian Folklife Festival. López explores arts and music from diverse indigenous communities of Oaxaca and other parts of Mexico, interviewing a musician from the southern coastal region of Oaxaca, who combines indigenous, African, and Spanish elements in his sones and chilenas, a wool weaver who continues a centuries-old family tradition of designing and weaving rugs with traditional Zapotec patterns, and an artisan who makes dolls out of corn-husks. This special edition of La Hora Mixteca also celebrates the 30th anniversary of Radio Bilingüe’s public broadcast service.
