Music Will Transcend Border at Douglas-Agua Prieta Concert

'Binational Concert Sin Fronteras' draws musicians from Mexico and US.

Douglas/Mexico Border SPOT DO NOT USE The border between Douglas, Ariz., and Agua Prieta, Mexico.


Live music will flow back and forth along the border in southeastern Arizona Saturday in the second “Binational Concert Sin Fronteras.” That’s a concert without borders.

Saturday, musicians– amateur and professional– ­from the states of Sonora and Arizona will set up on two band stands separated by the U.S.-Mexico border fence.

They will take turns serenading a crowd expected to be in the thousands coming together on both sides of the border. The performance is billed as a show of solidarity for those who live and work along the border.

In addition to music,­ Douglas will also host a binational art walk. For weeks, artists from both states have been submitting their pieces for display along G Street in Douglas.

The concert and the art walk are free and start around 4 p.m. Saturday, April 16, at the Douglas Port of Entry.
