Saturday, Sep 28, 2019 at 8:00 PM - English

A Tribute to Celia Cruz featuring India

In the 16 years since the death of Celia Cruz, there have been many tributes and concerts dedicated to the immortal Cuban singer, but none has been as personal as this one. The great Puerto Rican singer India will take the stage of the Adrienne Arsht Center to pay tribute to her idol and teacher, but above all, the woman who was her godmother. The greatest hits of the Queen of Salsa will live again in the unmistakable voice of India, winner of the Latin GRAMMY® and seven Billboard Latin Music Awards®. An all-star orchestra will be responsible for accompanying her in the songs that defined La Guarachera del Mundo's career such as “Quimbara,” “La vida es un carnaval” and “Bemba Colorá,” among many others, as well as India’s own hits. Celia Cruz baptized her with the nickname The Princess of Salsa. Who better than a Princess to sing to the Queen?

The Talbott Brothers: Run No More Tour

Thursday, Oct 3, 2019 at 8:00 PM - English

Blood is thicker than water and there’s nothing like family creating music together to prove it. With contrasting blood-harmonies and lefthanded/ right-handed guitar playing, singer-songwriter duo The Talbott Brothers combine rock, blues and pop with honest storytelling.

Show more >>

Nick and Tyler were born and raised in Imperial, a small town in Southwestern Nebraska, just a stone’s throw from the Colorado border. They began writing and performing together before relocating to their mother’s birthplace of Portland, Oregon. Tyler, the youngest (lead vocals, baritone guitar, harmonica) and Nick, the oldest (backing vocals, lead guitar) discovered their love of music after digging their dad’s old dreadnaught guitar out of the basement and teaching themselves to play along to Johnny Cash, Bob Seger and the Beatles on vinyl.

Following the release of 2017’s GRAY, they found themselves in front of sold out crowds in the US and sharing the stage with ZZ Ward, Johnnyswim and AJR. Ear to the Ground Music dubbed the record as one of the ‘Top 5 Albums of the Year’ stating it as, “equal parts optimistic and captivating, inspiring and hopeful.” Through rigorous touring and over half a million streams on Spotify, they continue to build a strong and loyal fanbase wherever they go.

Caravan: A Revolution on the Road

Friday, Oct 18, 2019 at 8:00 PM - English

Caravan: A Revolution on the Road
Featuring Terence Blanchard E-Collective, Rennie Harris Puremovement American Street Dance Theater & Andrew Scott

Terence Blanchard and the E-Collective collaborate with choreographer Rennie Harris’ company, Puremovement, and sculptor/projection mapping artist Andrew Scott to create Caravan: A Revolution on the Road, a new work expanding on themes explored on the first E-Collective recording and tour.

Show more >>

These artists have created a multi-disciplinary performance that transcends racial and social boundaries and breathe new artistic life into conversations on personal and collective identity in relation to social and political structures. Following the release of Breathless, an elegy for Eric Garner, Blanchard expressed that ‘we’ve been having dialogues for far too long with no actions, no change.’ The forceful, yet inclusive energy of this new project encourages the audience to make yet another step toward positive social change.

Blanchard’s fusion of jazz, R&B, blues, funk and soul will synergistically interweave with Harris’s approach to movement, which represents a kind of archaeology of the human spirit through vernacular African American dance styles. Scott’s conceptually-based visual projections and installations, which are rooted in African and African American art and culture, will seamlessly integrate into the overall artistic narrative. The skeleton of the work will examine these larger societal issues, while the individual nuances of the stories will reflect the life experiences of each artist and their thoughts and feelings about Black Lives in the 21st century.

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.

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.
