Astrid Hadad in Concert

In this video documentation, Astrid Hadad develops a musical arrangement regarding violence against women. Although her songs come from Mexican tradition and clearly refer to Mexican women, Hadad’s comments during the show suggests that gendered violence is endemic, and that is suffered not only by Latin American women, but by women all around the world. Dressed as ‘Adelita,’ iconic female figure of the Mexican Revolution, Hadad claims a stronger position for women in society. Female sexuality is at the center of her songs, looking for a liberation of women’s bodies – playing with Emiliano Zapata’s words, she says that ‘the orgasm belongs to those who work for it.’
