Details on each show:
• TRIO AZUL—Fusing jazz with traditional and not-so-traditional boleros, Trio Azul performs some of the most romantic music of the old and new worlds in two languages, played with heart and soul.
• NEW WORLD QUINTET—This show chronicles a musical journey from the rural back porches of Americana to the cobblestoned lanes of Eurasia, where faint echoes of bluegrass join in conversation with the plaintive voice of Gypsy violin. Inspiration for this world fusion ranges from the personal to the universal, from poetry and literature to painting and sculpture, from folk music to urban beat to classical.
• FLOWERS AND THORNS: THE MYTH, MYSTIQUE AND MUSIC OF FRIDA KAHLO & BILLIE HOLIDAY—This show honors the commonalities and connections between the two icons: their tremendous influence on popular culture, their political and social activism, the indigenous roots of their art, and most of all, their ability to transmute personal pain into work of great beauty.
• RANCHERAS PARA REIR Y LLORAR—This show evokes the era of the Mexican Revolution, when a lone troubadour with a guitar traveled from campfire to cantina, conveying the news of the day through rancheras—one of the country's most famous genres—story-songs of sadness and satire, battles and broken hearts.
