WHAT & Harwich Junior Theatre to Present SOL Y CANTO, 11/2-3
Inspired by the enthusiastic response to last year's performance by Cuba's Coro de Entrevoces, WHAT and Harwich Junior Theatre again join forces to bring Sol y Canto to Wellfleet. While both performances are appropriate for everyone, the Sunday matinee is specifically family-friendly and offers free admission for kids 16 and under when accompanied by a parent or guardian.
Sol y Canto serves up great Latin music led by Puerto Rican/Argentine singer Rosi Amador and New Mexican guitarist/composer Brian Amador. Rosi's crystalline voice, likened to ..."clean spring water, ...smooth and clear, and ...necessary for life," and Brian's quirky, original compositions address matters of the heart and social and global aspirations of all races and nationalities. From gentle ballads to driving dance rhythms, their performances are always a bilingual treat with new compositions and old favorites plus something for the child in us all.
Latin roots music to change the world; passionate, poetic, playful and honest. Three-time winners of Boston Music Awards' "Outstanding Latin Act," Sol y Canto features founders Puerto Rican/Argentine singer Rosi Amador's crystalline vocals and New Mexican Spanish guitarist/composer Brian Amador's sumptuous Spanish guitar playing and compositions. Critically acclaimed as Boston's Latin music ambassadors since 1984, the couple performs Brian Amador's original compositions in richly diverse Latin rhythms from Puerto Rico and Cuba to Peru, Argentine and Uruguay as well as popular Latin tunes, touching on themes of hope, social justice, infatuation, love and whimsy, in genres ranging from gentle ballads to churning Latin dance rhythms.
A portion of the ticket sales for Sunday's family concert goes directly to Harwich Junior Theatre.
Tickets: $25 (accompanied kids 16 and under admitted free on Sunday)
