American Spiritual Ensemblease_foto_web

The most pure style of the Negro Spiritual. The famous American Spiritual Ensemble returns to Spain to offer at the International Festival of Santander the most native version of “American Negro Spiritual”, as an example of the definitive interculture over time. The fusion of African and European villages in the United States of American  from the late years of the XVIII Century and the first decades of the XIX make up an exemplary songbook that today we know thanks to the investigative and interpretive work of the hardworking groups, such as the American Spiritual Ensemble. The religious nostalgia of the Negro Spiritual is the intercultural proposal of this virtuous group of Americans that claims our sensibility to the pleasure of choral singing.

Duration for approximately 2 hours and 5 minutes.

Where: El Palacio de Festivales, Sala Argenta, Santander

The verses are located in a Benedictine monastery of Beuren, a German town of Bavaria, and above all else, in the Latin of the Middle Ages. Orff has written one of the most beautiful and imaginative musical pages combining old styles with the most exciting piano and percussive timbre of the present.  (Sigue leyendo.)

Rafa Prada presents his exhibition

10 comentarios »

The Spanish flag, as such, acts for society as a whole a forced banderas-comunidadesrejection that responds to historical reasons. There only exists some situations that make our national flag appear released from its political and social duty, as occurred in the last Football World Cup in 2010.

Rafa Prada presents an induction that proposes a fictional situation, a prior state of the utilization of flags, completing this with the active participation of the spectator, that closes with its relation as an icon.

Conjuro 2011: Cultural Program from June to October in Santillana del Mar

2 comentarios »

Today, 06 of June, begins the Conjuro program in Santillana del Mar with puchi-incera-en-santillana-del-marthe inauguration of the exhibition of Puchi Incera “Tiempos del Querer” at 19.30. You may visit the works from 01 to the 24 of June in the Contemporánea RC room (Diocesan Museum of Regina Coeli).

From Puchi Incera: With painting, I try to command the chaos of my ideas. They are like schemes that enclose diverse content and at the same time, opens its branches. There are some verses with a lot of words condensed into one or various colorful images, whose source is experience and memory. The paintings are continuous self-portraits, a form of psychoanalysis or looking at the interior of an individual, in a search without an end. It is a way of apprenticeship where manual activity and intellectual decision interact.

This year there will be seven exhibitions  (Sigue leyendo.)
