ShadowLight Production's performance of:
WAYANG BALI: An Evening of Balinese Shadow Play
Saturday, June 25 8:00pm
$25 door / $20 advance
Performed by Artistic Director and Shadow Master Larry Reed.
The award winning, internationally acclaimed Shadow Master, Larry Reed, presents a great event for all ages. Featuring a stunning array of intricate, handmade shadow puppet figures silhouetted on a backlit screen, the ancient stories blend religious mythology alongside historical events with humorous improvisation. The combination of shadow puppets, live music and the sense of humor and fun in the stories themselves make this an evening you don’t want to miss. As an added bonus, Larry invites the audience to come to the side of the stage and watch how he and his ensemble manipulate the shadow puppets and create the magic, and to observe the Gamelan ensemble and their ancient instruments.
An Evening of Portuguese Fado--
RAMANA VIEIRA & Ensemble
with special guests FATIMA SANTOS & JOSE IGLESIAS
Friday, July 1 8:00pm
$22 door / $18 advance
East Coast duo Fátima Santos and José Luis Iglésias join West Coast vocalist Ramana Vieira for an evening of fado-inspired music. Fado, the most widely recognized music of Portugal, is a passionate, soul-stirring genre with soaring vocals and dramatic tales of love, loss and redemption.
“No one in the United States is doing more to breathe new life into Fado,” -SF Chronicle
A native of Albergaria-A-Velha in northern Portugal, Fátima Santos was attracted by the operatic vocal technique used by Coimbra Fado singers, and inspired by great composers such as José Afonso, Luiz Goes, and Fernando Rolim. Performing many types of Portuguese vocal music, she is one of the leading exponents of the Coimbra Fado style. Fátima won the International Portuguese Music Awards “Song the Year” award in 2014.
Doors open 25 minutes before the concert.
