I will be playing a very special show on Friday March 22nd in celebration of International Women’s Month presented by La Peña and the Transnational Institute for Grassroots Research & Action (TIGRA). I will be opening the show, accompanied by Patrick Wolff (clarinet and tenor sax) and by Tomoko Funaki on upright bass. Please read below for more information.
I hope to see you there!
LAS TRES MARÎAS…
Cynthia Alexander, Diana Gameros & Radmilla Cody. Las Tres Marîas are musical virtuosas, honoring the love, sacrifice and role of women in the migrant economy. Las Tres Marîas will weave their migration her-stories with international migrant struggles through the power of song.
