Dreamers: Brooklyn Rider with Magos Herrera
|No events found.|
Join Mexican-born songstress Magos Herrera, cutting-edge string quartet Brooklyn Rider, and Mathias Kunzli on percussion for “Dreamers,” an unforgettable musical journey that celebrates and explores music from Mexico, Cuba, Peru, and more. With bold and evocative arrangements, this concert will amplify the artistry of luminaries who dared to dream under oppressive regimes of the 20th century. The words of artists like Violeta Parra, Federico Garcia Lorca, and Gilberto Gil come to brilliant musical life and represent love for humanity, love for democracy and provide us all with an inspiration to dream.
Magos Herrera is regarded as one of the most expressive, beautiful voices and most active vocalists in the contemporary Latin American jazz scene. She is best known for her eloquent vocal improvisation and her bold style that elegantly blends and surpasses language boundaries. Brooklyn Rider defines the string quartet as a medium with deep historic roots and endless possibility for invention; they find equal inspiration in musical languages ranging from late Beethoven to Persian classical music to American roots music to the endlessly varied voices of living composers.
