COMIENZA LA 7ma SEMANA CULTURAL DE AMERICA LATINA EN NYC

Friday, November 9, 2012 , Posted by LATINO EVENTS Y TESPIS MAGAZINE at 4:58 PM




Hoy es el primer día, de diez (10), para darnos un paseo por el vibrante mundo de las artes visuales, la música y el talento con raíces latinoamericanas.  La Semana Cultural de América Latina en NYC (LACW / Nov. 9-19) nos trae una cartelera repleta de buen teatro, música, arte y cine de varios países latinoamericanos. El año pasado disfrutamos sobremanera algunos de los conciertos presentados con grupos de Venezuela y Chile. Este año estamos seguros que LACW nos hará disfrutar de nuevo, y con diferentes propuestas, nuestras raíces latinas.
Para ésta 7ma edición, el equipo de Polly Ferman, fundadora de festival, nos tiene a artistas establecidos y emergentes que se presentan en varias instituciones culturales de la ciudad: el Repertorio Español, Carnegie Hall, El Museo del Barrio, El Instituto Cervantes y The Americas Society, entre otros.

World-class musicians Daniel Binelli (bandoneon) and Polly Ferman (piano) have united their talents to develop and further the appreciation of the tango, milonga, candombe, and other Latin American musical forms in the rarely heard partnership of the bandoneón and piano. Their performances reflect the elegance and the subtlety of the traditional tango, the sauciness of the milonga, the romance of the waltz, and the temperament and power of the contemporary tango.
