Meet the Artist Saturdays
David Rubenstein Atrium at Lincoln Center, Frieda and Roy Furman Stage
Four years ago the Grammy Nominated production team DEORO embarked on a radical musical adventure on the remote island of Mindanao in the southern Philippines. In the hills of Bukidnon they wrote and recorded with members of the Talaandig tribe and Katyapi virtuoso Waway Saway. Fusing their unique style of classical groove with the thousand year old local tradition of tribal music, Dave Eggar and Chuck Palmer continued their collaborations in the bustling metropolis of Manila fusing the tribal music with the edgy urban sounds of some of the best known young Filipino Artists Nyko Maca and Jonan Aguilar. This resulted in the release of DEOROXX a powerful record celebrating the fusion of western and Filipino music. DEORO now brings this innovative fusion of the classical the tribal and urban contemporary to Lincoln Center for a powerful evening of music, dance, martial arts and video celebrating Filipino culture past and present and a new era of extreme collaboration.
The Meet the Artist Saturdays performance is a special workshop production for the entire family and is a sneak peak at the world premiere to take place May 9, 2013 at Target Free Thursdays at the David Rubenstein Atrium.
The Brooklyn Manila Project was commissioned by Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts.
