[Puerto Rico] Day after Thanksgiving jíbaro music+ concert by MIJO DE LA PALMA

Awesome music from Puerto Rico and a great after Thanksgiving hangout to let the tryptophan wear off :-) The performance starts 8 pm.

a pre-event meetup 7 pm: at Rosa Parks Room of the Democracy Center: an informal wine and cheese hangout. I'll buy a couple bottles of wine and invite anyone to bring a bottle for the group. I'll also get other refreshments for those who don't drink alcohol and pick up some cheese and crackers.

MIJO DE LA PALMA presents their unique blend of Puerto Rican jíbaro music and contemporary acoustic sounds while remaining true to the social justice themes of traditional Nueva Trova.

Mijo de la Palma / 23, Nov. 2012 • 8pm / The Democracy Center / 45 Mt Auburn Street / Cambridge, MA / $10 suggested donation (no one turned away for lack of funds) • For more info www.centerwithoutwalls.org

“Mijo de la Palma’s shows should take place at a public souk, a rural market, a beach campfire, in one of those places where everyone of us can find shelter as long as we commit to strip ourselves off prejudices”.

Jose Ángel González, Calle 20 Magazine. Madrid (Spain)

MIJO DE LA PALMA
FT. Mario Schambon

Born out of the eclectic musical scene in the western side of Puerto Rico, Mijo de la Palma’s sound is an unfolding of handcrafted jíbaro music and modern acoustic rhythms. The earthy, melancholic and intimate lament of the jíbaro intersects with upbeat and catchy tunes of today’s singer-songwriter and flamenco music resulting in their trademark Fusion Jíbara. Fusión Jíbara is not only a creative blend of poetry and musical textures that redefines the sounds of contemporary Puerto Rican music, it also provides the new generations with music intimately linked to a strong Puerto Rican identity in times of severe political turmoil in the island.

.......................................

“I finally got to see Mijo de la Palma. They pull you by the feet and drag you to a hill that only they know. Before the first minor chord, they pull off your shoes and take you by the hand. Once they finish, they leave you barefoot and in search for your way back.

Yoshua Cortes, Teatro Beckett, Río Piedras

    Hi folks, Luis is also organizing pre-event cheese and wine hangout at Rosa Parks Room of the Democracy Center from 7:30pm. He said he will buy a couple bottles of wine and soft drinks and invite anyone to bring a bottle for the group. The performance starts 8 pm and the cheese and wine 7:30 pm. Luis is performing so he tries his best to greet you and host. The Democracy Center (a white painted house) is a 5 min walk from Harvard Sq T at the junction of Mt. Auburn and Bow st. Have a great time!

    Thanks Luis for the email with the info.

    Since we'll be in Harvard Square, do people want to have a post-meetup event as well nearby? We usually do this for Harvard Sq. events for the World Music Group, and it's a good way to get to know each other as well after the event.

      Hello Kenny, Helen sent me an email asking the same thing. I'm on the road as I write this (not driving) :-) and will send an email to all with options when I get home in about an hour. Should be fun! Peace! LC

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
