Next @19th delves into the many facets of Miamiâ€™s diversity with Alejandra Czarny, a local Argentinean and Jewish folksinger. With Alan Reyna on percussion, Alberto Miranda on bass and special guest pianist Dr. Alan Mason, associate professor of music at Barry University, she will perform songs that capture her South American and Jewish roots in a singular, acoustic style. Refreshments include Next@19thâ€™s signature Guava Rugelach Cocktail with Lâ€™Chaim Vodka and delectable Guava Rugalach pastries.
â€œAs an arts organization, we think of â€˜Moving Jewish Culture Forwardâ€™ as a culturally layered experience,â€ said Jenni Person, Director of Next@19th. â€œMusic is an amazingly universal platform that allows us to combine many genres, and gives the listener the opportunity to create his or her own personal relationship with the sounds that touch them the most.â€
On stage for more than 20 years, Czarny has recorded two CDs with Yiddish songs (â€œUnder the White Starsâ€ and â€œSongs about Songsâ€), which include both traditional and original compositions. Performing several of her own pieces inspired by Latin American rhythms in Spanish, her rich background as a musician, radio host and music therapist in Buenos Aires and as Music Director at Temple Sinai in Hollywood, FL spotlights the many cultural intersections of South Florida.Thank you for using Soul Of Miami!
