The Museum of Contemporary Art North Miami (MOCA) is presenting “HamacaS,” a socially engaged project by Liene Bosquê, coordinated by Ana Clara Silva, on view from February 8 through March 29, 2020. HamacaS explores the cultural dissonance and emotional displacement experienced by immigrants in the United States. The project consists of an interactive installation at the museum that will be activated through collective hammock weaving sessions and workshops. The project will offer a critical and expansive conversation around immigration with communities in Miami. As an integral part of the project, HamacaS will continue to develop and be presented throughout different locations in Miami after its inaugural run at MOCA North Miami.

HamacaS reconsiders the relational meaning of site and place for a group of people that both occupy several spaces at once and are rendered invisible in this country. The project asks us to imagine how immigrants carry place with them across borders and barriers. What purpose can a collective, shared space have for members of a community that is both villainized and erased at the same time? HamacaS is meant to act as a safe space for dialogue, debate, and understanding through engaging in making––the space between the hand and the mind that offers respite.

Liene Bosquê is a visual artist and art educator based in Miami. Bosquê’s artworks have been exhibited in museums and galleries in the United States, at MoMA PS1 in New York, and the Museum of Contemporary Photography in Chicago, among other places. In 2016, she received the Emerging Artist Fellowship from the Socrates Sculpture Park in Queens, where she presented her first public sculpture. Recently, Bosquê was an artist in residence at Queens Museum’s ArtBuilt residency in New York, where she started the socially engaged project, HamacaS. Her work has been included in international exhibitions in Brazil, Portugal, Italy, Turkey, and South Korea; at places such as Museu de Historia Natural in Lisbon, Museu de Arte de Ribeirão Preto, and Sesc in São Paulo.

HamacaS is funded by The Ellies, Miami’s visual arts awards, presented by Oolite Arts as well as the WaveMaker Grants program presented by Locust Projects, and is supported by The55project.

The project will maintain public hours on Saturdays and Sundays from 2:00-4:00 p.m. The artist will be onsite on 2/8, 2/9, 2/15, 2/16, 2/29, 3/1, 3/7, 3/8, 3/21, 3/22, 3/28 and 3/29 and welcomes the public to come participate.

On Wednesday, March 11, from 7:00-9:00 p.m., there will be a screening of 16mm film and digital video on the subject of weaving and culture surrounding this age-old craft. Screening to be followed by HamacaS artist Liene Bosquê and project coordinator Ana Clara Silva in conversation. The event is free and open to the public.

Guests are invited to a closing reception on Sunday, March 29 from 12:00-3:00 p.m. The event is free and open to the public.

Eternal Bachelor Peter Fogel has major commitment issues as the love of his life has just broken up with him on Valentine’s Day! Sensing his own mortality he decides to revisit the scene of all his romantic disasters with a Special Visitor who mentors him on the true meaning of commitment.

And with that decision, Fogel brings you his autographical tale of a comedian’s Quixote quest to finding and surrendering to the one woman who can transform his life: Fogel’s hysterical and critically acclaimed multi-media solo show, ‘TIL DEATH DO US PART…YOU FIRST! is Directed by Academy Award Nominee and Three-Time Emmy Award Winner CHAZZ PALMINTERI (A Bronx Tale, The Usual Suspects, Bullets Over Broadway)

Fogel laments to his audience: “The longest relationship I’ve ever had in my entire life… is with Alexa’s Amazon!”

Young or old, divorced or married…if you’ve ever been single (and that’s everyone) and want to experience (again) the feeling of finding that special person to spend the rest of your life with, then you’ll want to fasten your seat belt for 75 minutes of non-stop laughs with Peter Fogel’s ‘TIL DEATH DO US PART…YOU FIRST!

Miami Art Zine says “… A hilarious cross between “Men Are From Mars/Women Are From Venus and “Defending the Caveman!”

The NY Post says… “the single’s man, single man… who tells such hilarious stories about being single in the city… one wants to go out and find him a suitable mate!”

The Palm Beach Arts Post… “Fogel’s ingratiating delivery and inclusive approach to the subject, plus some genuinely funny observations, make ’Til Death an entertaining evening out!”

During Miami Art Week 2019, the Museum of Contemporary Art North Miami (MOCA) is presenting a special exhibition reception on Thursday, Dec. 5 to celebrate its two exhibitions showcasing women artists ― Cecilia Vicuña’s “Cecilia Vicuña: About to Happen” and the late French-Mexican Surrealist Alice Rahon’s “Poetic Invocations.” Both exhibitions will open on Tuesday, Nov. 26 and remain on view through Sunday, March 29, 2020.

The first major U.S. solo exhibition of influential Chilean-born artist Cecilia Vicuña, “About to Happen” traces Vicuña’s career-long commitment to exploring displaced materials, peoples, and landscapes in a time of climate change. It is comprised of Vicuña’s multidisciplinary work in performance, sculpture, drawing, video, text, and site-specific installations created over 40 years. For the first time in this traveling exhibition, the show will include painting, a practice Vicuña began during the 1970s and to which she has recently returned, in some cases repainting lost works from memory. The exhibition is co-curated by Andrea Andersson, The Helis Foundation Chief Curator of Visual Arts at the CAC, and Julia Bryan-Wilson, Associate Professor, University of California, Berkeley.

“Poetic Invocations” marks the first solo show dedicated to Alice Rahon’s work in the U.S. in 55 years. Born in France and later nationalized as a Mexican, Rahon became an active member of a group of European Surrealist artists in exile. This exhibition examines a robust moment that emerged in 1940 as an international community of artists fled World War II in Europe and settled in Mexico. It will feature approximately 30 works including paintings, works on paper, as well as archival material that emphasizes Rahon´s oeuvre as a whole. The exhibition is guest curated by Mexico City-based art historian Tere Arcq. Arcq has worked as chief curator at the Museo de Arte Moderno in Mexico City, and has independently produced many high-profile exhibitions.

Satellite Beach Blues takes place along the Space Coast of Florida in an unspecified moment in the very near future: a transgender woman living in a cheap hotel on Florida’s Space Coast observes life in the state from the very shores where rising seas are slowly inundating the state. For this appearance at MOCA, Erica Dawn Lyle will be performing an experimental lecture in which she will read from the novel while edited sequences and soundscapes from the film-in-progress play on the big screen behind, offering a dreamlike consideration of gender transition, Florida’s legacies of colonization and real estate speculation, and the magical realist possibilities of transcendence beyond capitalism through queer lived experience. In response to the slow motion environmental collapse of Lyle’s native Florida, collaborator, Midnight Piper Forman, and Lyle (working together collectively under the name, SOBBETH) have for the past three years undertaken an ongoing multi-part exploration of the ruins of the Sunshine State’s post-war 20th century mythology.

South Florida native, Erica Dawn Lyle, is a writer, musician, and curator who lives in New York City. She is the author of On The Lower Frequencies: A Secret History of The City (Soft Skull, 2008), and her writing has appeared in Art in America, Artforum, Frieze, and on NPR’s This American Life. Since 1991, she has edited and self-published the DIY art/crime/punk magazine, SCAM. Her most recent book is Streetopia (Brooklyn, 2015). Currently she plays guitar in the bands, Bikini Kill and AquaShade.

Frontline communities in South Florida have been fighting against exploratory oil drilling in the Everglades for years. Now the stakes are even higher: the case against Kanter Real Estate has made its way to Florida’s Supreme Court, and we have to take urgent action to stop them.

With Kanter doubling down on its efforts to drill in the Everglades, we’re not backing down or going away. In fact, we’re doubling down too: getting ready to fight harder and smarter, training, connecting, and growing the fossil fuel resistance right here in our community.

That’s why the Promise to Protect Training Tour is coming to Miami. The Promise to Protect was originally created to resist the Keystone XL pipeline, but now the promise has expanded nationwide to inspire organizers like us fighting for the Everglades in South Florida to stand up and refuse fossil fuel projects from entering our backyard.

Can you join us for one of the upcoming trainings?

The Promise to Protect Training Tour is an opportunity for us to learn from Indigenous leadership on how we can protect our threatened environment and frontline communities from toxic and destructive extraction that does nothing but harm people and our planet.

This training will share knowledge from Indigenous leaders on the frontlines of the Keystone XL fight that can share best practices on how we can unite to fight for the Everglades. You’ll learn about nonviolent direct action, support roles that make nonviolent direct action possible, protocols for mobilizing in Lakota territory, and how to carry this work forward as we challenge the higher court officials.

Standing on the shoulders of flute giants from worlds as diverse as Rampal & Galway in Classical Music; Richard Egues’ Cuban Charanga style; rocker Ian Anderson’s Jethro Tull; Herbie Mann and – most influential of all – Hubert Laws as pioneers of Jazz Flute, Latin Grammy Award winning Nestor Torres’ rhythmic and mellifluous flute sound remains apart in a class all by itself. His 14 recordings as a soloist; 4 Latin Grammy nominations, one Grammy nomination and one Latin Grammy Award; collaborations with diverse artists such as Gloria Estefan, Kenny Loggins, Dave Mathews, Herbie Hancock, Tito Puente, Michael Camilo, Paquito D’ Rivera and Arturo Sandoval; as well as performances with the Cleveland, Singapore, and New World Symphony Orchestras among many others, are testament to the remarkable journey of an Artist who continues to grow and enrich the lives of those who experience his talents.

“It is a rare occasion that I have to consult a Thesaurus to find enough superlatives to describe this flautists performance. I could say “incredible” and not be close. “Fantastic” an understatement. “Impressive” would have to be in headline type.”… Speaking of masters, Nestor Torres is a maestro, a professore, technically perfect, with a tone that is beyond belief; imagination and creativity pervade every solo.”

Cost: $5

The Museum of Contemporary Art (MOCA) North Miami will present the exhibition “Tracing the Red Thread,” by distinguished South Florida-based artist Mira Lehr, Sept. 6 – Nov. 4, 2018. The multimedia, museum-wide installation will reflect Lehr’s eco-feminist philosophy, the concept of mankind working with nature rather than dominating over it. Lehr uses the classical myth of Ariadne to explore the beauty, fragility and interconnectedness of the endangered aquatic ecosystem of the South Florida coast.

In Lehr’s mesmerizing installation, two and three-dimensional works evoke dense thickets of mangroves, the dangerous beauty of jellyfish and the ethereal luminosity of the coral reef. Lehr creates a mysterious world whose seductive beauty reminds us not only of the gifts that nature gives us, but of the importance of preserving them for the future generations.

Comprised of a variety of multimedia works, “Tracing the Red Thread” focuses on climate change and environmental issues as a major factor facing mankind today. The exhibition draws on the lessons Lehr learned six decades ago working with Buckminster Fuller on his “World Game Project.” As Lehr learned in her work with Fuller, the earth must be seen as a unified island within the oceans so one is made aware of the interconnectedness of all life.

Admission to MOCA is $5, but free for MOCA members and North Miami residents. An artist reception will take place on Thursday, Sept. 13, with an admission cost of $10 to the general public, free to MOCA members and North Miami residents.

The Museum of Contemporary Art North Miami (MOCA)
770 NE 125th Street,
North Miami, Florida 33161
Website
Cost: $10 to the general public, free to MOCA members and North Miami residents

The Museum of Contemporary Art North Miami (MOCA) will present the group exhibition “Monarchs: Brown and Native Contemporary Artists in the Path of the Butterfly” from May 24 – Aug. 5, 2018. Curated by Risa Puleo, the exhibition features the works of 37 artists who are native to the Americas separated into conceptual categories including indigenous, immigrant and assimilated.   
 
The exhibition focuses on the monarch, the only butterfly that migrates in two directions, as a geographic range and a metaphor. Monarchs (specifically those of eastern North American) fly from southern Canada through the Midwest on their way to Michoacán, Mexico and back. 
 
This survey of artists from or living in the path of the monarch, brings to life the Dakota Access Pipeline and the call to build a wall in Mexico as unrelenting issues that create challenges for people native to the Americas — being separated by conceptual categories of indigenous, immigrant, and assimilated. 
 
Like the butterfly, which takes at least four generations to completely navigate its way through middle America with inherited knowledge, these artists also use inherited cultural memory to showcase and explore historical narratives of their respective heritage through abstract techniques. 
 
Artists incorporate processes such as basket weaving, beadwork, copper hammering, and quilting, and materials such as stucco, plaster, ceramics, and feathers, that hold a high degree of resonance within native, immigrant, and brown aesthetics and vernacular cultures. The exhibition also charts the movement of styles and approaches through large spans of time across the Americas, speaking to an inherited means of production and genealogy of form. 
 
William Cordova, a nationally respected Miami-based artist, is one of the artists featured in the exhibition. Other artists include Gina Adams, Carmen Argote, Natalie Ball, Margarita Cabrera, Juan William Chávez, Rafa Esparza, Nancy Friedemann-Sánchez, Guillermo Galindo, Jeffrey Gibson, Sky Hopinka, Donna Huanca, Truman Lowe, Ivan LOZANO, Cannupa Hanska Luger and Marty Two Bulls, Jr, Salvador Jiménez-Flores, Nicholas Galanin and Merritt Johnson, Rodolfo Marron III, Harold Mendez, Mark Menjivar, Ronny Quevedo, Gonzalo Reyes Rodriguez, Josh Rios andAnthony Romero, Guadalupe Rosales, Carlos Rosales-Silva, Francisco Souto, Rodrigo Valenzuela, Mary Valverde, Dyani White Hawk, Nathan Young, and Sarah Zapata.

About Sergio’s Cuban
After an extensive search, Sergio’s Cuban awarded the rights to Cuban Manna, LLC for Dade, Broward and Palm Beach Counties. The development group is led by operator Manny Rodriguez who was the first person to bring Domino’s Pizza and Baskin Robbins to Latin America. Mr. Rodriguez has partnered with Altis Cardinal’s principals Frank Guerra and AJ Suarez. Both AJ and Frank currently have over $1.5 billion dollars in real estate development throughout the United States and were excited to be part of launching the growth of Sergio’s Cuban.

Under CEO Carlos Gazitua’s vision, Sergio’s Cuban is breaking all the rules. The ethos behind his bold new concept? “A Fresh Take on Cuban.” Diners will queue up and customize the ingredients in their dish while overseeing the process. Ropa Vieja, Citrus Grilled Chicken, Organic Quinoa, Cauliflower Rice or Sergio’s award-winning Steak or Cuban Sandwich; there are no wrong answers as hungry patrons are emboldened to make the call. Sergio’s Cuban lives in a world of authentic yet unique (i.e. classic cafecito v. newly launched nitro café con leche on tap; or the traditional guava pastelitos and croquetas v. oven-baked empanadas of carne and maduros or vaca frita).

The new fast-casual concept has already opened in Florida International University, American Airlines Arena, Ft. Lauderdale Airport and will now be launching new locations throughout South Florida and beyond, beginning with North Miami—its first retail establishment.

About Sergio’s Cuban
After an extensive search, Sergio’s Cuban awarded the rights to Cuban Manna, LLC for Dade, Broward and Palm Beach Counties. The development group is led by operator Manny Rodriguez who was the first person to bring Domino’s Pizza and Baskin Robbins to Latin America. Mr. Rodriguez has partnered with Altis Cardinal’s principals Frank Guerra and AJ Suarez. Both AJ and Frank currently have over $1.5 billion dollars in real estate development throughout the United States and were excited to be part of launching the growth of Sergio’s Cuban.

Under CEO Carlos Gazitua’s vision, Sergio’s Cuban is breaking all the rules. The ethos behind his bold new concept? “A Fresh Take on Cuban.” Diners will queue up and customize the ingredients in their dish while overseeing the process. Ropa Vieja, Citrus Grilled Chicken, Organic Quinoa, Cauliflower Rice or Sergio’s award-winning Steak or Cuban Sandwich; there are no wrong answers as hungry patrons are emboldened to make the call. Sergio’s Cuban lives in a world of authentic yet unique (i.e. classic cafecito v. newly launched nitro café con leche on tap; or the traditional guava pastelitos and croquetas v. oven-baked empanadas of carne and maduros or vaca frita).

The new fast-casual concept has already opened in Florida International University, American Airlines Arena, Ft. Lauderdale Airport and will now be launching new locations throughout South Florida and beyond, beginning with North Miami–its first retail establishment.

Friday, February 23, from 8-9:15 PM: The Bobby Thomas Jr Quintet: Two-time Grammy Award nominee Robert “Bobby” Thomas Jr. has wowed audiences around the globe for more than three decades. Widely considered one of the most important percussionists in music history, his lightning-fast hands and percussive pyrotechnics prompted the great Joe Zawinul to bestow upon him the title of “Hand Drummer.”

After graduating from high school, Thomas studied at Miami-Dade Community College. During this time, he discovered jazz, and began to play with saxophonist Jet Nero at the Gold Dust lounge and other artists including Ira Sullivan, Billy Marcus, Zoot Sims, Thad Jones, Monty Alexander and Mel Lewis. In the late 70s, Thomas played at a benefit with Jaco Pastorius in Miami Springs. Soon afterward, Thomas auditioned with Joe Zawinul and Wayne Shorter’s jazz fusion group Weather Report at a live performance in New Haven, Connecticut.

Bobby played with Weather Report and its successor bands Weather Update, The Zawinul Syndicate, and Jaco Pastorius’ Word of Mouth Band. He has recorded and toured with the likes of Stan Getz, Ahmad Jamal, Monty Alexander, Sir Roland Hanna, Zoot Sims, Herbie Mann, Eddie Harris, Branford Marsalis, Ahmad Jamal, Junior Mance, Paul Desmond, Johnny James, Monty Alexander, Wes Montgomery, and Roberto Perera. World artists he has played with include sitar player Amitava Chatterjee, and African artist Vinx. Currently a core member of The Zawinul Legacy Band, Thomas has issued several solo CDs, on which he plays an eclectic mix of instruments including conga drums, wind instruments, guitar and the African bow harp. He also leads a new group, The Alien Brothers: 7th World, who are putting together a debut album soon to be released.

With: Abel Pabon (keys), Armando Gola (bass), Jonathan Joseph (drums), Jesse Jones Jr (sax)

MIAMI, FL – Renowned actor Avi Hoffman will star in the South Florida premiere of Reflections of A Lost Poet. Reflections will run at The Michael-Ann Russell Jewish Community Center’s (MAR-JCC) Cultural Arts Theatre (JCAT) from Wednesday, December 13 through Sunday, December 24, 2017.
Reflections of A Lost Poet will be performed in the original Yiddish language with both English and Spanish supertitles. Performances in Yiddish with English supertitles have proven to be a success, as with Mr. Hoffman’s Drama Desk nominated Off-Broadway performance of Willy Loman in Arthur Miller’s Death of a Salesman in Yiddish and Paula Vogel’s Indecent, seen last year on Broadway and on PBS, in which some of the dialog was in Yiddish.
Reflections of A Lost Poet, written by acclaimed playwright Miriam Hoffman, (who is also Avi’s mother and was recently inducted into the Bronx Jewish Hall of Fame), is a one-man tour de force following the life and times of Itzik Manger, considered one of the greatest Yiddish poets. The play is a serious, occasionally funny, monologue comprised of songs and poems, capturing Manger’s joy and anguish during the tumultuous years of Europe’s burgeoning Jewish culture, before it was decimated by WWII. The Megillah of Itzik Manger was the last musical performed on Broadway, entirely in Yiddish, in 1968.
“It will be one of my most meaningful performances, as it’s written by my mother and I’ll be speaking solely in Yiddish, which is the heart and soul of the great poet Itzik Manger’s work,” said Avi Hoffman. “For the past few years, my mother and I have reestablished the Joseph Papp Yiddish Theatre, which aims to keep the Yiddish culture alive. The fact that this show will be performed in Yiddish, with English and Spanish subtitles, is a step in helping us reach our goal.”

Join us for a FREE evening concert with Tito Puente Jr. and his Latin Jazz Ensemble in celebration of Hispanic Heritage Month on Friday, September 15, 2017. Doors open at 7 PM and the concert begins at 8 PM.

The comparison is inevitable. How could it be otherwise? Tito Puente Jr. carries his father with him – imprinted on his physical being and locked in his soul. It’s in his looks, his joy, his music. No doubt, every time Tito Jr. walks on stage – he walks in his father’s footsteps.

He dances in celebration, throws his head back in pure joy and lights up the room with that oh-so-familiar smile. Tito Jr. is on a passionate mission. The younger Puente is determined to nurture the musical legacy left by his father. He refuses to let it become a distant memory; “He was just too vibrant, too exciting. There was magic in the music my father made. It made people happy, all over the world. My goal is to keep it alive, and in doing so, expose it to a whole new generation.”

Tito Jr. has found captive audiences who echo his passion. Crowds once lured to a venue by the father’s magic have returned to enjoy the son – participating once again in the high voltage celebration that takes place on stage.

Tito Jr. reveres the magnificent, lasting impact his father had on our musical lives. Audiences the world over agree there is nothing so perfect, pure or passionate than a tribute to a father from his son. “People who don’t know anything about Latin music know my father and people always, always smile when they say his name,” he confides. That is a very special gift, and it inspires and motivates me to bring his music to the world.”

There will be a cash bar and Latin food for sale. The Littman Theater is at 17011 NE 19th Ave in North Miami Beach. Tickets are FREE! Tickets are available at Parks and Rec or at the door; for more information, please call (305)948-2957 weekdays 8-5. Music courtesy of KCC Productions.

In Too Jewish?, Avi Hoffman combines music, comedy, impersonations and personal reminiscences to take audiences on a journey through his Jewish roots. The show also illustrates the traditions and history of his beloved Yiddish culture. In “Too Jewish?”, audiences throughout can identify with the humor and music of his upbringing. Jews and non-Jews alike, laugh and cry with Avi, as he takes them on a journey through history, relating stories of his family’s immigrant background and the culture within which he was raised. He has discovered the “lost treasures” of Jewish comedy and music. He has found the songs and routines that entertained hundreds of thousands of people from the Catskills to Miami Beach, from Carnegie Hall to the Yiddish Vaudeville.

Cost: $5

The Museum of Contemporary Art (MOCA), North Miami will open its fall season with the presentation of Edouard Duval-Carrié: Metamorphosis. The solo exhibition by Duval-Carrié, renowned Haitian-born American artist and Miami resident, will be on display Sept. 7–Nov. 5, 2017. This exhibition not only revises the artist’s work, but also introduces approximately 37 new creations, as well as a recreation of his studio in one of the gallery rooms.

Curated by Anthony Bogues, Ph.D. and Professor of Africana Studies at Brown University, Metamorphosis centers on the symbolic and cultural histories of Haiti and the Caribbean, interpreting colonial encounters and their consequences. Central to the changes in this time period were slave rebellions and the Haitian Revolution. Duval-Carrié’s artistic themes are many variations on the historic life of the region, blending his distinct aesthetic with the everyday, creating pieces that represent the Caribbean Diaspora experienced up through the present day.

Works in the exhibition reflect how the region’s flora and fauna were essential to the colonial experience, as seen in the work Red vs. Blue Skirmish. Other works include vignettes of a slave who transforms himself into various forms of animal life; boats transformed into containers of sugar; and disfigured human forms, heads and faces metamorphosing from their symmetrical shapes into things unknown. The Memory Series, mixed media pieces done in resin, reveals the artist as an extraordinary colorist, transforming some of his former artistic themes into a new artistic vision. The exhibition thus creates contemporary echoes of the historical colonial encounter and the construction of the New World, and considers its meanings for today.

“We are delighted to present the work of renowned artist Edouard Duval-Carrié at MOCA,” says Natasha Colebrook-Williams, MOCA’s interim director. “With Duval-Carrie’s extraordinary following, it is a pleasure to exhibit Metamorphosis, an exhibition with new works that have not been shown before. MOCA is proud of its international outlook and the unique exhibitions we share with our audience.”

Admission to MOCA is $5, but free for MOCA members and North Miami residents. An artist reception will take place from 7–9 p.m. on Thursday, Sept. 14 with an admission cost of $10 for the general public and free to MOCA members and North Miami residents.

The Museum of Contemporary Art (MOCA), North Miami is featuring Karina Iglesias as part of the monthly “Jazz at MOCA” series. Born and raised in Miami to Honduran parents, Iglesias’ sound mirrors the diverse musical and cultural influences that have shaped her character and forged her individuality as an artist. A veteran of the Miami live music scene, Iglesias has highly-focused artistic vision, rich cultural background and proclivity for harnessing a wide range of production techniques, which showcases her strong elements of innovation and brings a much-needed return to the authenticity of pure soul music.

In 2013, Iglesias was selected as a top contestant on NBC’s hit show “The Voice.” Her incredible performance of “It’s a Man’s Man’s Man’s World” turned into a YouTube sensation overnight, and every judge had glowing comments after her performances. In 2012, Iglesias sang a duet with Franco de Vita and was featured in his live DVD album, “En Primera Fila,” which won two Latin GRAMMY Awards®. She has also shared the stage with artists including Beatriz Luengo, Alejandra Guzmán and Gilberto Santa Rosa. The public is invited to come sit under the stars and enjoy the pure soul music of Iglesias.

Karina Iglesias’ sound mirrors the diverse musical and cultural influences that have shaped her character and forged her individuality as an artist. With a style equally informed by rhythm & blues, boleros, gospel and hip-hop Karina delivers her performances with the intimacy of a deep soul crooner and the conviction and drive of a dauntless female singer/songwriter. Her emotionally charged and deeply personal lyrics revealed a depth of character and vulnerability that can only be conveyed when a singer truly connects with their song.

In 2013, Karina was selected to be a top contestant on NBC’s #1 TV Show “The Voice”. Her epic performance of “It’s a Man’s Man’s Man’s World” turned into a YouTube sensation overnight and every judge had glowing comments after her performances. Wth her highly-focused artistic vision, rich cultural background and proclivity for harnessing a wide range of production techniques, Karina Iglesias has showcased her strong elements of innovation and heralds a much-needed return to the authenticity of pure soul music.

“I felt like for the first time on the show, that possibly…, the light fixtures were just gonna explode, because [she is] a great singer and [she] really deserves to be here, so congratulations.”
(Adam Levine, The Voice)

Artistic expression is a healthy way to articulate our emotions. “Above all this event should inspire us to tell our stories that we may pass on the hope that has been placed in us.”

The Museum of Contemporary Art, North Miami (MOCA) is delighted to announce this month’s musical performance by the Glyn Dryhurst Dixieland Jazz Band as part of the monthly Jazz at MOCA series. The Jazz Band’s name “Dixieland” is a name bestowed to the style of jazz performed by early New Orleans jazz musicians. This is one of the earliest styles of jazz music and the Glyn Dryhurst Dixieland Jazz Band is the leading band devoted to this genre of music. The style combines earlier brass band marches, French Quadrilles, beguine, ragtime, and similar styles to achieve this unique style of music.

While instrumentation and the size of the bands may vary, the “standard” band comprises a “front line” of trumpet, trombone, and clarinet; and the “rhythm section” of either guitar or banjo, string bass or tuba, or piano and drums. This intricate jazz sound of music is kept alive by a handful of dedicated bands.

The MOCA galleries will be open by donation from 7 – 10 pm.
