One event on November 16, 2017 at 9:00pm
The gaita, or Galician bagpipe, has an unmistakable sound: haunting, tender at moments, and ferocious in others. A member of Yo-Yo Ma’s Silk Road Ensemble, Cristina Pato is one of its few masters. “She’s a virtuoso, and when she opens the floodgates of her technique, the force can knock you back a few steps.” (The New York Times) In two different programs with her quartet, Pato will showcase all that her instrument and prodigious talent can offer. At 6PM, she samples the diffusion of Latino music from her most recent CD “Latina,” and at 9PM the ensemble returns to explore the gaita’s folk roots and legacy with selections from “Migrations.”
An event every day that begins at 10:00am, repeating until December 28, 2017
