Cascada de FloresCascada de Flores specializes in achingly beautiful songs from Latin America ’s golden age, including Cuban canciones de bolero to fill your heart to bursting, Mexican rancheras to break it, and Cuban guarachas that make you want to jump up and dance. At the heart of the music is the gorgeous voice of Arwen Lawrence and the expressive guitar of Jorge Liceaga. Together they create a wonderfully lush, intimate atmosphere. Tonight they celebrate the release of their latest album, Radio Flor, which they describe as “a musical love letter to the Golden Age of radio, when songs reigned and a melody grabbed your heart for a lifetime.” The San Francisco Chronicle has called their music “delightfully upbeat, mournful, whimsical, and wistful.” “Cascada de Flores explores the musical traditions of Mexico and Cuba with grace and sensitivity,” says Sing Out! Magazine. “The result is rich, delicate, and lovely.” The ensemble features Arwen on vocals, as well as dancing and playing rhythm guitar, Jorge on a variety of traditional guitars, Saúl Sierra-Alonso on leoncita and double bass, Marco Díaz on trumpet and piano, and Brian Rice on percussion. The music of Cascada de Flores evokes the wonder of a world gone by, with family and friends gathered around a radio made of wood and tubes and wires, each song inspiring joy or tears or wild dancing, the stuff of cherished memories.
Joining in on the celebration tonight is the VL Trio, featuring Saúl, Marco, and the amazing Cuban percussionist, Carlos Caro. Their debut album, Tradicionando, brings to life classic hits from Cuba and Puerto Rico.
