Mateo’s World Music Collective
The Republican National Convention comes to Minnesota the first week in September. Regardless of one’s political allegiance—conventions are all about partying!
I have assembled a new group I am calling the World Music Collective. They will perform at two separate parties to be held at Solera Restaurant (900 Hennepin Ave in downtown Minneapolis). I combined Mandragora Tango plus 4 tango dancers with Touareg (Middle-eastern and Rai music) plus 2 dancers along with Flamenco Mateo plus 2 flamenco dancers. In all, we have 12 musicians and 8 dancers who will present continuous music and dance as a huge multi-cultural extravaganza.
I hope to find as well as create many other opportunities to present this talented collective of artists in performance. For the moment, I am consumed with these first two dates—it is very exciting, exhilarating, and a little daunting….
