The twelve romantic boleros on Duarte’s album Reencentros, sung in Spanish, will be the program of one set of this concert with Duarte accompanied by Trio Chapultepec (Vincent A. Pequeño, Israel Alcala, and William Carlton Galvez) and special guest Jesús Pacheco on percussion. These Latin popular standards are truly art songs from the mid-20th century. In the second set, Duarte will be joined by guitarist Misael Barraza-Díaz with a program primarily of Spanish song for voice, guitar, and percussion.
Cecilia Duarte writes this about the origin of Reencuentros: “This album is a reencounter with my past, a remembrance of the moments when I listened to my mother sing many of the songs compiled here, and a reflection of who I am as an artist today… Reencuentros represents where I come from and the stories that formed me. It is important for me to share this legacy of beautiful music, only a small token of the artistic richness of Latin American music.”
