World Music Institute Announces 2008-2009 Season Additions
Published August 19, 2008

Heralding its 24th season of presenting world music and dance to audiences, the World Music Institute’s 2008-2009 Season will span from this fall through next summer. An array of artists have been recently added to the lineup of acts who will make an appearance this season.

 

Among them will be vocalist and bandleader Kanda Bongo Man, who will launch the celebration. One of the giants in modern African pop, he is a pioneer and superstar of modern Congolese soukous - joyful and uplifting dance music that combines African traditional melodies and African-rooted rhythms.

 

Also making an appearance will be vocal quartet Serenata Guayanesa. One of Venezuela's most beloved bands, they are dedicated to exploring Venezuela's diverse and extensive musical traditions.

 

Guitarist/composer Arturo Martinez (“Espiritu Gitano”) has been a noted figure in the New York flamenco scene since the 1980s. His program is rooted in the Andalusian Gypsy tradition and is inspired by various traditions, including North African, Hispanic-American, and jazz.

 

Last but not least of thw WMI’s recent additions is Los Farruco - the first family of flamenco dance. Los Farruco is a famous flamenco dynasty known for its powerful performances of Spanish Gypsy art.
