Mijo de La Palma in Cambridge, MA

Don't miss out on what has become an awesome annual tradition with the northeast touring of one of the islands best musical exports, Mijo de la Palma.

(first) Thursday, Aug. 1, 2013 • 8pm
Holden Chapel • Harvard Yard
Harvard Square • Cambridge
$10 suggested donation
(no one turned away for lack of funds)

our famous pre-concert Meet-up BYOB reception will start at 7:00pm (thanks to Kenny Hyde for pushing for this) :-)

Mijo de la Palma was born out of the eclectic musical scene in the western side of Puerto Rico. Their creative sound merges the earthy, melancholic lament of jíbaro with upbeat tunes of today’s singer-songwriters, resulting in their trademark Fusión jíbara. This blend of poetry and musical textures redefines the sounds of contemporary Puerto Rican music and provides the new generations with music intimately linked to their strong heritage.

Mijo de la Palma has performed in Spain and toured Mexico for three months in[masked], where they were chosen to present at the prestigious 2011 TED Conference in San Miguel de Allende. In the states, they have performed frequently in San Francisco, Hartford, Bridgeport, Cambridge, Orlando and at the Passage Theater in New Jersey. Melvin López Rivera, Puerto Rico (guitar and main vocals), the backbone of the group, will be joined in this unique performance by Adaliz Ortiz, Puerto Rico (backing vocals), Mario Schambon, Columbia (percussion).

Music, in Mijo de la Palma, is a reassertion of cultural roots; it is never forgetting.

This is great passionate music, whether or not you understand the Spanish lyrics, join us!

    Hello all...We won't be able to do a full out reception like we've done in the past at the Democracy Center. But feel free to BYOB. I'll bring a couple to share. Should be fun!
