RAICES: A Series Curated by John Santos
Twice winner of the coveted Latin American Grammy Award, for the Best Folk Album for Lamento Negro in 2002 and again for her participation in the Latin-American super group Los Super Seven which included Mexican stars from Los Lobos and the Brazilian legend Caetano Veloso, Susana Baca is the singer who has introduced Afro-Peruvian music to the world.
The musical legacy of the Africans who created communities along the Peruvian coast is her passion. Her whole life has been dedicated to celebrating her African heritage keeping the irresistible rhythms of her ancestors alive.’
Contemporary (Latino) American Music
Curated by John Santos
A concert series of diverse Latino (American) music representing hemispheric creativity in a wide range of formats interpreted by several of the most dynamic interpreters in the field. The term America in its true sense refers to North, South and Central America as well as the Caribbean islands. Accordingly, Latin American music defies brief descriptions. Folk syles and rhythms in traditional and evolutionary settings, dance music and jazz play seminal roles in this series.
