Add to calendar 2013-04-13 2013-04-13 35 Michele Rosewoman + New-Yoruba at Painted Bride Art Center Michele Rosewoman and New Yor-Uba return to the Bride to take audiences on a journey spanning ancient Yoruba culture through Cuban Folkloric music with a contemporary jazz concept for a thoroughly uncompromised synthesis of these two profound musical genres. Ms. Rosewoman, who recently turned 60 years old, also celebrates with the ensemble their 30th anniversary of their first studio recording. With a repertoire that includes the debut of new and rarely performed works, New Yor-Uba salutes the Orishas (Yoruban deities) through Ms. Rosewoman’s original compositions and visionary arrangements of centuries-old Yoruba (Nigeria) and Arara (Dahomey) chants as well as Abakwa (Nigeria) and rumba (Cuba) musical traditions.
