Waltons World Masters presents Susana Baca, National Concert Hall, 22 June 2017

Waltons World Masters presents Susana Baca at the National Concert Hall, Thursday  22 June 2017
SUSANA BACA Screen John Field Room
One of the supreme divas of world music and the greatest living exponent of the Afro-Peruvian musical tradition, performing in Ireland for one night only.
Free online booking at http://www.nch.ie

Her…performance was luminous, her powerful yet delicate voice resonating with remarkable purity.’ – LOS ANGELES TIMES

The music retains its undulating sensuality, call and response vocals, pinpoint arrangements and peppery rhythms…and stage centre is the sublime Baca herself, an expressive singer and luminous presence whose sultry dance moves and ability to establish a mood and hold it are mesmerizing.’
– SEATTLE TIMES

Baca crafts an innovative and organic take on the Afro-Peruvian musical tradition, in the process catapulting herself to the forefront of an Afro-Peruvian revival.’ – NPR WORLD CAFÉ

I could be convinced to live full-time in Baca’s complex world of Afro-Peruvian music. Here, Andean melancholy is perfectly expressed by an intriguing blend of Spanish melody and African-rooted rhythm.’ – ROOTS WORLD

A world-class world music diva.’ – THE GUARDIAN

With her unmistakable voice and equally impressive interpretive gifts, Susana Baca is a Peruvian national treasure. Born in the black coastal barrio of Chorrillos, outside Lima, where descendants of slaves have lived since the days of the Spanish Empire, Baca was immersed in the wonderfully complex world of Afro-Peruvian music from a very early age. She first came to international attention in 1995, when her rendition of ‘Maria Lando’, a heart-breaking ballad of worker oppression, was included on David Byrne’s The Soul of Black Peru album. Since then, she has brought her intriguing blend of Spanish melodies and African-rooted rhythms – along with her stellar group of Latin American musicians – to audiences worldwide.

Susana Baca is a performer like no other and simply must be experienced live. Her songs are poetic (with lyrics by some of Latin America’s finest poets, with whom she collaborates) and rich with storytelling and evocative imagery; her voice is by turns powerful, smoky and ethereal; her stage presence is elegant and engaging, as she gracefully glides barefoot about the stage while singing; and her delivery is emotionally rich and deeply felt.

Please join us for an unforgettable performance by a true world master.

Susana Baca • Vocals
Hugo Bravo • Percussion
Ernesto Hermoza • Guitar, Charango
Oscar Huaranga • Bass
Maria Helena Pacheco • Violin

Since the first models in the mid 80s Yamaha’s R&D department, working in conjunction with an astounding breath of international artists, have constantly pushed the boundaries of design innovation in their mission to distill the sound, touch and feel of some of the world’s finest grand pianos into an instrument that would be practical and affordable for all.
