Experience the Music of Rural South America

City of Asylum Banner (2019)

Tierra Adentro

In the Depths of the Land

Thursday, October 10th
7:00 pm

This fall, City of Asylum is proud to present four concerts celebrating music from around the world. Our World Music Series opens with an evening of songs from different regions of rural South America, performed by internationally acclaimed artists Raquel Winnica Young and Dieter Hennings-Yeoman.

Raquel Winnica Young and Dieter Hennings-Yeoman

This program features folk styles seldom heard in the U.S. including zambas, carnavalitos, cuecas and valses, and the chilena from Oaxaca, based on a Chilean rhythm. These songs feature poetry and lyrics by prominent 20th century South American and Mexican songwriters who were inspired by the life of the “unheard” people who live and work the fields of foreign and desolate lands.
