Chilefornia Music 

Rafael Manriquez and Duamuxa

Three decades after exiles from the military coup in Chile began arriving in the Bay Area, La Peña Cultural Center is offering music programs focusing on what that experience means. Chilean singer Rafael Manriquez and the group Duamuxa share the stage on Sunday in "Celebrating Chilefornia: The Chilean-Californian Identity Through Music and Documentary." A truly inspiring musician who plays guitar with a classical approach to accompany his soaring tenor voice, Manriquez has lived half his life in Berkeley, but his music is always rooted in Chile and its people's struggles for justice and identity. Duamuxa works mainly in radio, and tonight celebrates its bilingual radio documentary, Chilefornia, playing excerpts along with music and a photo exhibit. 7:30 p.m., $12. 510-849-2568.
