LINEAJES Closing Concert Celebration

LINEAJES Closing Concert Celebration

Pre-registration for this program has ended. A block of walk-in tickets will be available on site beginning 30 minutes before the performance on a first-come-first-served basis.

Celebrating the closing week of the exhibition LINEAJES, this concert features artist Antonio M. Gómez with his Trío Guadalevín bandmates Abel Rocha and Gus Denhard, accompanied by Portland-based, Moroccan-flamenco ensemble Seffarine, and some additional surprise guests. In the spirit of the exhibition, this concert will explore lineages that bind the Americas with Southern Europe and North and West Africa, celebrating the complex and elegant musical family tree shared across continents.

About the Artists

Trío Guadalevín explores the musical dialogue between the Indigenous, European, and African cultures that define Latin American identity. Mexico meets the Mediterranean with songs, stories, and an incredible array of instruments from the Americas, Africa, and Europe. Named for the ancient gorge in Ronda, Spain, the trio weaves a tapestry of music, languages, culture, history and geography. Moving seamlessly between the past and present, they mix contemporary, folkloric, and historic melodies sung in Spanish, Zapotec, and Ladino. Excavating musical traditions from across the Atlantic, they lovingly interpret Mexican son jarocho, son huasteco and Afro-Oaxacan music alongside Iberian, Arabo-Andalusian, Sephardic Jewish, and North African melodies and rhythms.

Born in the ancient city of Fes, Morocco, internationally acclaimed singer Lamiae Naki and her ensemble Seffarine channel their deep knowledge of the music of both sides of the Straits of Gibraltar, the crossroad where African, Middle Eastern, and European cultures meet. From the ninth to fifteenth centuries these cultures coexisted peacefully, producing a seminal musical alchemy that influenced the foundations of both classical Arabic and European Renaissance music.

In the twenty-first century, Seffarine embraces and extends the rich legacy of this golden age of tolerance and exchange between Muslim, Jewish and Christian cultures by creating fresh, innovative works reconnecting these shared Mediterranean roots.

Antonio M. Gómez: LINEAJES is organized by Amanda Donnan, Chief Curator and Director of Exhibitions, with Alexis L. Silva, Curatorial Assistant.

Lead support for this exhibition is provided by the Raynier Institute & Foundation through the Frye Art Museum | Artist Trust Consortium. Additional generous support is provided by the Frye Foundation and Frye Members. Media sponsorship provided by KEXP.
