Performances on May 27th:

  • 4:30 pm – Jessica Pavone (solo set)
  • 5:00 pm – Jessica Pavone / Amirtha Kidambi Duo
  • 5:30 pm – Amirtha Kidambi (solo set)

++ food provided throughout by Flux Iron Chefs!

More information on the artists…

Jessica Pavone (composer, viola, violin, el.bass) has performed in countless improvisation, avant jazz, experimental, folk, soul, and chamber ensembles since moving to NYC in 2000. She currently plays with Normal Love, in a duo with guitarist Mary Halvorson, with Anthony Braxton’s ensembles and as a solo violist. As a composer, The Wire magazine praised her “ability to transform a naked tonal gesture into something special,” and The New York Times described her music as “distinct and beguiling…its core is steely, and its execution clear.”

Amirtha Kidambi “takes a holistic approach to singing, which can mean treating every element as unfixed: Words can be opened up, rendered nonspecific. Melody can be repeated and frozen and stuck in place. Markings of rhythm can become utterly abstract, freed from cadence.” (New York Times)

Honoring our roots means remembering how our ancestors healed themselves and acknowledging their gifts through medicine-making. Using plants and flowers directly from Borikén (Puerto Rico), we will make alcoholado, a medicinal rubbing alcohol (or liniment) used to heal a number of spiritual and physical ailments such as muscular pain, headaches, insect bites, melancholy and emotional trauma. To learn more about Casitas Wisdom, please visit casitaswisdom.org.

Facilitated by Myrna Cabán Lezcano, Sacred Vibes Apothecary and Casitas Wisdom; and GreenThumb

Este taller se ofrecerá con traducción al Español.

Honrar nuestras raíces se trata de recordar cómo nuestros ancestros se curaron a sí mismos y reconocer su legado al hacer medicinas.
