Italian HIT Week: Unexpected Sounds from Italy

Saturday, Nov 16, 2019 at 7:00 PM - English

The 2019 edition of the annual visit by Italian music’s most innovative artists brings Carmen Consoli and Gio Evan to Miami for a free concert!

Carmen Consoli is a Sicilian singer-songwriter-superstar in Italy. She built her audience first as a rocker and a pop singer, but since rocketing to fame in Italy in the early 2000s, she has branched out.

Show more >>

Along with the hits and anthems, she has released albums that explore acoustic music of Sicilian and Mediterranean folk instruments. Her music has incorporated folky transparency and pan-Mediterranean heritage, hints of gypsy violins and multileveled lyrics anchored by her lovely smoky voice. She remains one of Italy’s best loved artists, awarded countless music and civic awards, including being named a Goodwill Ambassador by Unicef, and a Knight of the Order of Merit of the Italian Republic. She has released 11 studio albums, and amassed 11 platinum and 2 gold record certifications.

Gio Evan is a versatile artist, writer and poet, philosopher, humorist, performer, songwriter and street artist. He spent eight years journeying the world on a bicycle. His travels took him across Europe, then to India, South America and beyond, to live alongside local teachers, musicians, mystics and magicians, receiving shamanic initiations and activations in the vibrational and therapeutic world. When he returned home to Italy, he was filled with gratitude and the need to live amidst art, surrealism, and sacred play. Throughout 2015 he began publishing works of fiction and poetry, and also launched some musical and performance projects. By 2017 he was the most-read Italian living poet! He is also a popular performer in Italy, and has returned to the stage this year.

Italian HIT Week is produced by the Rhythm Foundation with support from the Italian Trade Commission, FIMI, and Puglia Sounds. Partners in the Miami production include the Consolate of Italy in Miami, FIU Italian Club, and FIU Department of Modern Languages.

The Forgotten Kingdom: Guy Mendilow Ensemble

Saturday, Nov 16, 2019 at 7:30 PM - English

The Forgotten Kingdom's intertwining music and storytelling conjure voices from Sephardic communities lost to war and upheaval. It's an evocative trek through former Ottoman lands during the turmoil of the 1920's and 30's, during the rise of fascism. Rendering stories and songs of an older age with drama, humor and heart, The Forgotten Kingdom finds highly resonant, deeply moving connections to contemporary struggles, debates, and dilemmas.

Show video >>
Show more >>

The Forgotten Kingdom tells of the ending of an age, one whose passing begins with the traumas of the Great War and the collapse of the Ottoman Empire and whose definitive ending is ushered in by WWII. With sand animation, the tale will be told through glimpses and impressions captured in a book of memories found by a daring refugee girl upon her return to her ruined village in 1944. She does not know whose sketches these are. But in the pages she sees her own story, and that of her family. The sketches capture day-to-day life, from the final decades of the 19th century, on through the onset of WWI and ultimately chronicling the disillusion, betrayal and heartache that turned neighbor upon neighbor and covered entire communities with a 'shroud of oblivion' as tens of thousands were deported to camps like Auschwitz.The book is not complete. The show poses a hopeful question: How do you pick up the pieces? The show ends with the girl's determination to continue the story. As she embarks on a new beginning, she adds her own sketches to the book. The Forgotten Kingdom springs from Sephardi women's songs from the late 19th and early 20th centuries. All music is in the endangered Ladino language, a combination of archaic Spanish with Turkish and Greek. The narration is in English. The show weaves its tale impressionistically, through a series of vignettes with recurring characters and themes. The addition of Kseniya Simonova's captivating, nuanced visual storytelling will enable the show to reverberate on deeper levels.

The idea from Under The Tree came from a concert under a huge Banyan tree in Costa Rica this last equinox with full moon.

It was an incredible experience, much more like a ceremony than the usual concert feeling. People were sitting close to us and we were all surrounded by the sounds of nature in which our music blended gently and our united voices felt so much more home when being in touch with the plants, the starry sky, the night wind, sounds of insects and birds, the realm where we all come from and belong to.

After this we felt very strongly that we wanted to do more such concerts and take people out of their buildings into nature.

The Miami concert will be the first one of many more to come in different places in the world with Avatar trees.

Art Garfunkel

Thursday, Mar 12, 2020 at 7:30 PM - English

Although it has been over 40 years since Bridge Over Troubled Water was recorded, Art Garfunkel's image and signature vocal remain among the most instantly recognizable in popular music. His "beautiful countertenor," as Neil Strauss described Art's voice in The New York Times, is clear and resonant, surely one of the finest instruments in all of popular music, and a time-honored friend to a world of listeners.

  • Tickets start at $55

Show more >>

The dialogue began for Art at age four, when his father brought home one of the first wire recorders. Seven years later he was singing Everly Brothers songs at school talent shows with a partner, Paul Simon, from his Forest Hills neighborhood in Queens, New York. In 1957, “Tom and Jerry” (as they were called then) landed a recording contract. Their first 45, Hey, Schoolgirl (which they wrote together) scored a moderate hit and they appeared on American Bandstand as high school seniors

After college, he met up again with Simon and they started performing as Simon & Garfunkel at the height of the folk music boom in late-1963, and within a year were signed to Columbia Records. From 1964 to 1970, they recorded a groundbreaking string of classic albums (Wednesday Morning 3 A.M.; Sounds Of Silence; Parsley, Sage, Rosemary and Thyme; The Graduate; Bookends; and Bridge Over Troubled Water) and an equally impressive body of songs, many of which became pop standards: The Sound Of Silence, Homeward Bound, I Am a Rock, Kathy's Song, April Come She Will, At the Zoo, A Hazy Shade of Winter, America, Scarborough Fair/Canticle, Mrs. Robinson, The Boxer, Bridge Over Troubled Water, Cecilia, El Condor Pasa, and My Little Town.

Simon & Garfunkel won five Grammy awards together, two in 1968 and three in 1970. In 1972, Simon & Garfunkel Greatest Hits was released, remaining on the charts for 131 weeks in the United States and a staggering 179 weeks in the UK. The album has since sold 14 million units - the largest selling album of all time for a duo. In 1990, Paul and Art were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, and in 2003 they accepted the Grammy's Lifetime Achievement Award, before launching another successful worldwide tour.

Having already worked with director Mike Nichols on The Graduate soundtrack, Garfunkel went on to feature acting roles in Nichols' movies Catch-22 (1969) and Carnal Knowledge ('71), opposite Ann-Margret, Candice Bergen and Jack Nicholson. He also garnered acclaim for his roles in films such as Nicholas Roeg's Bad Timing: A Sensual Obsession ('80) with Theresa Russell and Harvey Keitel, Good to Go ('86) and Jennifer Lynch's controversial film, Boxing Helena ('93).

Over the last 20 years, Garfunkel has recorded and released a dozen highly acclaimed solo albums, and continues to perform in concerts worldwide.
