Tierra de Luz
November 9 @ 7:30 pm - 10:30 pm
Tierra de Luz, a collaboration between soprano Linda Faye Miller and flamenco dancer Anastassiia La Musa, made its sold-out debut in Calgary on March 30, 2019. This multi-disciplinary project takes its inspiration from flamenco music and dance, Spanish classical vocal music, and the poetry of Federico García Lorca. In one of his poems, Lorca referred to Spain as Tierra de Luz, Land of Light, the inspiration for the name. Soprano, Linda Miller, explores the visceral sounds and free improvisation of flamenco singing as well as the soaring vocal lines of operatic selections. The eclectic programme will offer sublime works by Granados, Villa-Lobos and Canciones Españolas Antiguas collected by Lorca himself. The ensemble includes Mexican flamenco guitarist/singer Ricardo Sanchez and Canadian violinist Jonathan Lewis. Flamenco improvisations and original compositions by Sanchez and Lewis will thrill the audience and inspire La Musa’s dance in both traditional and modern flamenco.
