Fabiola Méndez is a Puerto Rican cuatrista, singer, EMMY®-nominated composer, and educator who has taken part in a musical and cultural movement, crossing over the lines of genres such as folk, jazz, and Afro-Caribbean, and taking the listener on a journey through identities, cultures, and roots. Méndez’s mission is to share and celebrate the cuatro, folk music, and collective storytelling.

This residency is co-sponsored by the Music Department, the Dyer Center, the Office of Intercultural Development, and the Latin American and Caribbean Studies Program.
