Beall Concert Hall, 961 E. 18th Ave. UO campus
Free & open to the public

Mare-v3Mare, a Zapotec hip-hop artist from Oaxaca, Mexico, and founder of Advertencia Lirika, will appear on tour for her new CD, SiempreViva. Mare uses her rap as a tool to develop consciousness and to build networks within social movements in Oaxaca and elsewhere. Always looking to expose the gender inequality that exists in society, she has worked with a wide range of groups and organizations within Mexico and throughout the world.

In June 2012, NRP Music selected Mare’s work as the “Best Alternative Music of the Year” after she toured in 25 U.S. cities in six states. In March 2013, Mare received the Maria Sabina Prize in recognition of her work in promoting women’s rights through music.

She narrates her personal history in the documentary film “When A Woman Steps Forward” (2012), directed by Simón Sedillo and produced by Manovuelta. The film can be accessed on YouTube.
