Putni performs El Paso de la Seguiriya in Riga, November 23

The women’s vocal ensemble Putni will give a repeat performance of my El Paso de la Seguiriya, a brand new setting of the poetry of Federico Garcia Lorca, on Friday, November 23 at 7PM at The Dome Cathedral of Riga, located at 1 Dome Square (Doma laukums 1) in Riga as part of their program Music in the Cathedral (Mūzika katedrālē).

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.
