Putni premieres El Paso de la Seguiriya in Riga, October 7

The women’s vocal ensemble Putni will premiere my El Paso de la Seguiriya, a brand new setting of the poetry of Federico Garcia Lorca, on Sunday, October 7 at 2PM at the Latvian History Museum, located at 3 Castle Square (Pils laukums 3) in Riga.

Commissioned with funds from the Latvian Culture Capital Fund and having grown out of some workshops I had created for Putni last year that included an introduction to flamenco, the piece includes a substantial amount of clapping in the flamenco style where the two parts interlock, called the palmas and contrapalmas.
