Dúo Cascada de Flores

Saturday, February 24, 2018

The celebrated duo of Arwen Lawrence and Jorge Liceaga explore the Latin American songbook!

Enjoy the Dúo Cascada de Flores as they dig deep into the hidden corners of the Latin American songbook and add their own creativity in form of composition and poetry.  Of course, there will be sing-a-longs!

“Featuring Arwen's ravishing voice and guitarist Jorge Liceaga's supple accompaniment, Cascada de Flores bring intoxicating energy to the Latin American songbook.”
-- Andrew Gilbert, San Francisco Chronicle, San Jose Mercury News
 
About Dúo Cascada de Flores
For 18 years, Jorge Liceaga and Arwen Lawrence, the co-founders of Bay Area music ensemble Cascada de Flores, have celebrated and reinvented musical traditions from Mexico and Latin America. The duet brings together bolero to bambucos, rancheras to trova, with a dizzying number of traditional instruments, such as tres cubano, guitarra de son and jarana of Veracruz, vihuela, donkey's jaw bone and percussive dance. Cascada de Flores has recorded 5 albums, created theatrical concerts such as Radio Flor and The Tree & the Donkey, collaborated in projects with local masters of Latin cultures, and scored music for film, shadow-theater and modern dance.

This free event is made possible thanks to funding from the Friends of the Menlo Park Library.
