Tuesday, August 14, 2012 , Posted by LATINO EVENTS Y TESPIS MAGAZINE at 7:06 PM

“This festival is one that is meant to link us as a people so that borders dissolve, and we find those common threads and musical moments which unite North and South America as one. This is our music.” – Gustavo Dudamel, Festival Director.


Americas and Americans is a festival that celebrates music from North and South America and the shared heritage and cultural experiences across the hemispheres. With a long-standing belief that barriers can be broken through art, Americas and Americans brings to life Dudamel’s global vision of a multi-cultural community unified by music. One of the major events of his 2009/10 inaugural season at Walt Disney Concert Hall with the Los Angeles Philharmonic, Americas and Americans now comes to the Hollywood Bowl in a week-long celebration encompassing a wide-ranging program that spans the musical spectrum. 
Americas & Americans will take place August 14 - 19.




Here is the line up!

* DUDAMEL & JUAN LUIS GUERRA > August 14

Joining Gustavo Dudamel and the 
Los Angeles Philharmonic orchestra is singer-songwriter Juan Luis Guerra, who popularized the bachata and merengue genres from the Dominican Republic. His unique sound, a mix of rhythms and melodies from a variety of styles, is beloved around the world.


* RUBÉN BLADES & EDDIE PALMIERI SALSA ORCHESTRA > August 15

Two titans of salsa share the bill! Iconic Panamanian singer-actor-politician Rubén Blades, the “Latin Bruce Springsteen,” makes his eagerly awaited return to the Bowl. The evening also features legendary Puerto Rican pianist Eddie Palmieri and his fiery Salsa Orchestra.

* DUDAMEL CONDUCTS GINESTERA & COPLAND > With Sergio Tempo > August 16

Just as Copland captured the wide-open plains of the U.S., Ginastera (who studied with Copland) fashioned a style that reflects the gaucho in the pampas of Argentina; both epitomize music of the Americas.

Colombian superstar Juanes has become the leading all-Spanish language music artist in the world. An electrifying guitarist and gifted songwriter, the 17-time Latin Grammy winner has made a global impact with his blend of rock en español and traditional Latin American rhythms, as well as with his commitment to social change through music.

* DUDAMEL & DOMINGO! > August 19
