About this event

Fabiola Méndez is a Puerto Rican cuatro player, educator, and composer that has taken part in a musical movement, crossing over the lines of genres such as folkloric, jazz & Latin.

Recognized for being the first student to graduate from Berklee College of Music with the cuatro as principal instrument (2018), Fabiola has worked and performed for artists such as: Totó La Momposina, Eddie Palmieri, Puerto Rican Symphony Orchestra, the Chicago Philharmonic, and Pedro Capó, among others. She currently works as an independent

artist all around the Northeast and Puerto Rico, collaborating with organizations such as Celebrity Series of Boston, WBUR, MFA Boston, MassArt, and Agora Cultural Architects, as well as composing for animated TV productions for Sesame Workshop, Fred Rogers Productions, and WGBH.

Fabiola Méndez's project Negrura (released in 2022) is an audiovisual storytelling experience that showcases the stories of Afro-Latinx folks from Boston’s Latin Quarter Cultural District. The film aims to create spaces for conversations about colorism, anti-blackness, discrimination, and racism within our own Afro-Caribbean and Afro-Latinx community.  Music, at the core of the project, connects our voices to provide a space for self-reflection, support, and healing.
