VOCES on PBS "Escaramuza"

Tue, 09/20/2016 - 9:00pm

VOCES showcases Latino artists, athletes and performers who reflect their culture while defying all expectations. 

In honor of Hispanic Heritage Month, WXXI presents Escaramuza: Riding from the Heart on Tuesday, September 20, 2016 starting at 9 p.m. on WXXI World. Las Azaleas are a gutsy team of women rodeo riders vying to represent the U.S. at the National Charro Championships in Mexico, where “to be Charro is to be Mexican.” Escaramuza, or skirmish, describes both their daredevil horseback ballets, ridden sidesaddle at top speed, and the intensity of their competition season. Neither life-altering challenges at home nor cartel violence across the border can keep Las Azaleas from their goal.
