In a very special show mirroring their “Family Dinner” series, 5-time Grammy winners Snarky Puppy will play host to three of the most important singers in the Spanish-speaking world. Silvana Estrada (Mexico), Silvia Pérez-Cruz (Spain), and Susana Baca (Perú) represent three different generations, continents, and musical traditions, but are bound together by their ability to communicate the deepest of emotions through song. This very special performance will feature music by all three women arranged by and performed with Snarky Puppy.
Snarky Puppy is a collective of sorts with as many as 20 members in regular rotation. At its core, the band represents the convergence of both black and white American music culture with various accents from around the world. The defining characteristic of Snarky Puppy’s music is the joy of performing together in the perpetual push to grow creatively.
The COLLABORATIONS series presents cross-cultural musical explorations and collaborations. This series often explores ways in which the music of artists from one culture have influenced the music of another culture, or the music of seemingly widely varying cultures can be strikingly similar or complementary.
