Almadraba

MUSIC

Oscar Peñas

 

Part of the 2018 Next Wave Festival

Spanish-born guitarist and composer Oscar Peñas and his quartet combine piano, bass, and drums with a string quartet in this classical-jazz suite inspired by the 3,000-year-old Andalusian fishing tradition known as the almadraba. Borrowing sounds from Cuban and South American folk music, as well as from Peñas’ own Iberian heritage, the composition pays poetic tribute to this age-old ecological technique for sustainably trapping bluefin tuna. A musical narration of this arduous process—from the labyrinthine formation of boats to the dramatic hoisting of nets—Almadraba is both a lush melding of sonic styles and a celebration of ancient wisdom.

Mimi Jones and the Black Madonna

“The inspiration for this concert came during my 2017 concert tour of southern Italy. When the promoter said to me, ‘You remind me of images of the Black Madonna,’ I realized that the only images I had seen of Christ and Mary were Caucasian. In Italy, I saw many pictures of black madonnas with a face that could look like mine. Those faces served as my muse, and revealed strength and grace,” said Jones.
