Today is Spanish Friday so this post is in Spanish. If you participated in Spanish Friday on your own blog, leave your link in comments. Scroll down for English translation!

Durante el último par de años Jenny Schweitzer ha trabajado en la creación de Rhythm in Motion, una serie documental en 10 partes cortas que retrata a músicos del metro de Nueva York en colaboración con la Autoridad Metropolitana de Transporte. Las películas están siendo publicadas en The Atlantic. La primera película, Flor de Toloache, cuenta con una banda de mariachis exclusivamente femenina que desafía las normas tradicionales del género. Me encanta!

  1. I know this question has nothing to do with the topic, but do you know any good Salvadorian books about the culture/history/mythology/food? I had to ask, lol. I’m Salvadorian and I’m going to El Salvador during the summer.

    • Hi there! Hm, do you need the books to be in English?

      Honestly, (unfortunately) the best books I’ve found about Salvadoran culture, food, history, etc., are in Spanish and for sale *IN* El Salvador.
