Friday, February 27, 2015
8:00 pm - 10:00 pm



Note:  This concert has been rescheduled from Feb. 21. 

AMALGAMA Music and Dance Project. A collaboration of composer and pianist Pablo Mayor (Folklore Urbano) and dancer and choreographer Daniel Fetecua  (Pajarillo Pinta’o) blending contemporary choreography and original music inspired by Colombia’s traditional rhythms and dances. Feb. 21st will feature Pablo Mayor, piano, Franco Pinna, drums, and Dave Hertzberg bass, with dancers Daniel Fetecua and Ryoko Kudo.

-A meeting of two creative minds, of two genres, AMALGAMA presents the music and dance collaboration of renowned Colombian artists Pablo Mayor and Daniel Fetecua.  These two innovators will explore the possibilities of contemporary choreography and original music based on the traditions of their native country COLOMBIA, using the most intimate form of the project which includes jazz trio (piano, bass, and drums) and two dancers.

-In the signature style of Pablo Mayor, urban (jazz) meets folklore, where the folkloric aspect of the music—the inherent groove—is the utmost priority.  Adding dance to this format only enhances the groove, a pairing common in the music and dance traditions of Colombia.  But the twist here is the dancer and choreographer is a member of the Limon Dance Company in NYC and comes with 10 years experience working with the Pina Bausch Tanzteater Wuppertal in Germany.  World class, cutting edge danceWorld class, cutting edge music.  The group presents modern choreographies with original music, contemporary takes on traditional dance and traditional music, and inspiring improvisations where each musician interacts with the dancers in a very raw, spontaneous setting.  It is truly a New York original, but deeply rooted in everything passionate, colorful, moving, and diverse about Colombia.
