THE DEVIL AND THE DIAMOND CD RELEASE CONCERT
Rolling drums and quicksilver accordion licks, earthy vibes and thoughtful reflections mingle on Matuto’s latest refinement of their Appalachia-gone-Afro-Brazilian sound. Tonight celebrates the release of The Devil and The Diamond on Motéma Music with live projection art by Ggeeoorrggiiaa featuring original Illustrations by Ty Wilkins.
THE AFRICA SUITE
This past Spring, Matuto completed a 6 week long cultural exchange across Africa that included Mozambique, Ghana, Ivory Coast, Cameroon, and Senegal. This performance will showcase new works directly inspired by this experience and feature special guests representing the continent.
This set is presented in collaboration with American Voices and the U.S. State Department
