CRISTINA PATO AND THE MIGRATIONS BAND
|Event Title:||CRISTINA PATO AND THE MIGRATIONS BAND (Tickets)|
|Event Description:|| |
Part of the 2012-2013 Texas Performing Arts Season
Presented in partnership with KUT Music
After a 2011 show-stealing performance as the green-haired member of Yo-Yo Ma’s Silk Road Ensemble, Cristina Pato returns to the Bass Concert Hall stage with her Migrations Band. Hailed by the BBC as “the Galician bagpipe diva,” Pato’s astounding command of the instrument known as a Gaita has made her an in-demand musical powerhouse. Renowned for her dramatic performances, Pato fuses influences of Sephardic, Latin, jazz, pop, and contemporary music to create a sound and vision that is energetic, flamboyant, and virtuosic.
In 1998, Cristina Pato became the first female Gaita player to release a solo album, and has since collaborated with some of the biggest names in world, jazz, classical, and experimental music, including The Chicago Symphony, Yo-Yo Ma, The Chieftains, and the Royal Pipe Band. You won’t want to miss this evening of exceptional world music.
