Crossroads Cultural Arts Series: Trio Guadalevín
May 19 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pmFree
Back by popular demand! Northwest Folklife is honored and excited to share the 6th annual series of curated, family-friendly cultural arts performances on the Eastside at Crossroads Mall’s Market Stage in Bellevue (15600 NE 8th Street) on the third Saturday of every month from 1 PM to 3 PM at no charge!
Named for the ancient river and gorge that divides the city of Rhonda in Andalusia, Trio Guadalevín explores the deep roots that bind the Americas with Southern Europe, the Maghreb and West Africa – roots that stretch across the ocean and intermingle Indigenous, African, Arabic and European cultural expressions. Drawing on Mexican Son Jarocho and Huasteco, melodies sung in Zapotec, Spanish xácaras, Italian ciaccona, Andalusian song, Sephardic balladry and Moroccan shabia – Abel Rocha, August Denhard and Antonio Gómez interpret and often re-imagine a soundscape that draws on the many facets of identity that link Latin America and the Mediterranean.
