Domingos en Arte: Edmar Castañeda

July 21

6 pm

Domingos en Arte, the summer music and dance series presented by MelazaMusic and the National Hispanic Cultural Center, enters its fourth season, with concerts scheduled through August. We have invited a wide range of Latin artists for family-friendly summer Sundays that feature live music, drinks, and delicious Latin cuisine in the NHCC’s enchanting Fountain Courtyard.

On July 21, a partnership with Outpost Productions and the New Mexico Jazz Festival brings Colombian-born harp virtuoso Edmar Castañeda to the courtyard stage. Castañeda has forged a unique musical path, bringing a wholly original voice to jazz and other genres, and taking the world by storm with his virtuosity and command of his instrument. A consummate collaborator, he has formed partnerships with Gonzalo Rubalcaba, Wynton Marsalis, and the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra, among others, and has performed at venues including the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, the Tanglewood Jazz Festival, and the 10th Annual World Harp Congress. “If you aren’t watching Castañeda in action, you might think you’re listening to an ensemble rather than a solo player…. Between both hands, you hear the overlapping polyrhythms of joropo, a complex, triple-meter dance from South America.” (Hartford Courant)

$20 w/ $5 discount for NHCC members and Outpost members; free for children 12 and younger
