GLORIA ARJONA

Singer, Storyteller, Author

I was born in El Paso, Texas, and grew up in Mexico City, with long stays in Yucatan, Quintana Roo, Chiapas, and Chihuahua. Thanks to this experience, I learned to observe the cultural complexity of Mexico, which determined my interest in history, literature, and popular culture. In addition to literature and history, my great passion is music. Hence, I created multidisciplinary lectures based in my research, in which I incorporate live music and media


Spanish 

Nací en El Paso, Texas, pero crecí en la Ciudad de México, con estancias prolongadas en Yucatán, Quintana Roo, Chiapas y Chihuahua, lugares con tradiciones y culturas muy diferentes. Gracias a esta experiencia, aprendí sobre la riqueza y complejidad culturales de México, que eventualmente me llevó a interesarme seriamente en la historia, la literatura y las diversas tradiciones culturales de mi país. Además de la literatura y la historia, mi gran pasión es la música, de ahí que haya creado conferencias multidisciplinarias ligadas a mis investigaciones académicas, en las que incorporo música en vivo, media y performance.
