There are moments in the journeys of gifted artists when they produce a work that transcends anything they have done in the past. They could be painters, musicians, or poets, but when it happens, it’s as if their thinking, vision, creativity, passion, experience, and purpose all align in such a way that their hearts and souls lift their work to the highest levels. The only way to describe a great work is – “Magnum Opus.” That is the case of Wilson “Chembo” Corniel’s “Artistas, Músicos y Poetas”.
Musicians and music bring us together for a community gathering and celebration, bring us light when there is darkness, hope when there is despair, therapy when our bodies and hearts are in pain, and uplift our spirits with inspiration. Percussionists, in particular, take me to distant places, to our roots. With every slap of their hands on the skin of a drum or the sound of a stick, they awaken the spirits of our ancestors and connect us so that we honor them. At the same time, we continue their legacy and path forward.
ADVANCED, SIGNED COPIES OF “ARTISTAS MUSICOS Y POETAS” AND MERCHANDISE WILL BE AVAILABLE AT THE PERFORMANCE
