Be immersed in a jazz creation of real genius as two time Grammy-nominated saxophonist Miguel Zenón and his ensemble perform an original work inspired by plena, a popular folk music form that originated in Zenón’s homeland of Puerto Rico. A noted Guggenheim and MacArthur Fellow, Zenón reawakens the spirit of this traditional music in Esta Plena, an evening-long program that explores both the instrumental and vocal elements of this art form.
This music is made possible by a Fellowship from the John Simon Guggenheim Foundation.
