Concert: "Celeste Alías tranquila: Celesta canta chavela” dins del "MAC Festival"
"Celeste Alías tranquila: Celesta canta chavela (Catalonia; Music; age 8+)
Neo-rancheros and galactic boleros. Celeste Alías embarks on a dramatised journey through the musical universe of the great Chavela Vargas, in a concert that celebrates the classics of that great artist, adding improvisations and a good dose of jazz. Tranquila is a song of freedom, love and life, a party that’s a tribute to the dead, a celebration of the life and death of a leading figure in the world of popular music.
Alías, Santi Careta (guitar) and Oriol Roca (drums) provide the music for the show, and Martí Torras Mayneris and Sadurní Vergés the drama: because Tranquila includes reflections, confessions and excerpts from the biography of pioneer LGBTI activist Chavela Vargas, and reveals the meaning of some of her songs, such as Macorina which was a clear queer protest song. Paloma negra, Volver and Llorona are among the other songs you’ll be able to hear at the Palauet Albéniz amphitheatre, in a concert that pays homage to a unique and unforgettable artist.
Duration: 60 minutes.
