    The English Beat [SOLD OUT]

    The English Beat has an energetic mix of musical styles and a sound like no other band. The group’s unique sound has allowed it to endure for nearly three decades and appeal to fans, young and old, all over the world.

    The Beat first came to prominence as founding members of the British two-tone ska movement, with their classic first album, Just Can’t Stop It, fitting squarely in that genre. Along with their contemporaries the Specials, the Selecter, and Madness, the band became an overnight sensation and one of the most popular and influential bands of that movement.

Slow", can match any of her earlier efforts as her latest performances are among the most vibrant of her career. The album is divided equally between new songs and her reinventions of country classics.

    Las Migas

    The four women of Las Migas come from four different cities that span not only the geography of Spain but also its cultural diversity: Barcelona, Sevilla, Córdoba, and Lérida. The two Andalusians play the guitar: Marta Robles, the quartet’s original member, and Alicia Grillo, the most recent addition and youngest musician of the group. The two Catalans are Alba Carmona (vocals) and Roser Loscos (violin). They all came to the group with one common passion: flamenco. You can hear it in the rhythms of the guitarists, the fluttering violin lines, and the raw power of the vocals. Carmona is also a gifted dancer.

    Recently launched, the new Las Migas live show contains many surprises. For the first time, Carmona presents special choreography featuring dance and vocals, filled with sensuality and self-confidence. The concert begins with a very intimate and personal approach and, as it builds in emotional intensity, it showcases the exquisite, heartfelt style that has always characterized the music of Las Migas.

    MIM Musical Interludes Series: “Metal Music” featuring the B1 Duo

    The transforming experience of “Metal Music” takes audiences inside the sounds of solid metal objects. Garth Paine and Simone Mancuso of B1 Duo morph these large impenetrable outer objects into intimate, fragile, rich, and bold timbres, texture, and musical forms. The composition and performance of this music is as much about the physical bodily sensation of sound as it is about the composed musical ideas.
