Harvard Residency and Latina Tour Dates


As part of her activities for the Silk Road Residency at Harvard University, the last week of April Cristina took part with Silk Road fellow members Sandeep Das, Joseph Gramley, and Hadi Eldebek in a panel discussion at the Radcliffe Institute for Advanced Study, titled “Cultural Navigation: Finding One’s Way Across Traditions”. You can read more about it here →, or watch the full video of the discussion at the Radcliffe Institute website →

The activities also included a concert of the Silk Road at the Sanders Theatre. Here’s a excerpt of the Boston Musical Intelligencer review:

The Latina 6/8 Suite, conceived by Cristina Pato playing gaita (Galician bagpipe) and written by Edward Perez, segued lively Italian tarantella with festive Spanish muiñeira in a jolly romp with lightly improvised solos by folks like bassist Shawn Conley and fiddler Johnny Gandlesman.

And speaking of Latina, Cristina is hard at work preparing the album release tour, with dates announced for Sonoma, CA (May 10), Santa Barbara, CA (May 13), San Antonio, TX (May 14) as well as the Release Party at SubCulture in New York (May 17).
