On the heels of Mercedes Gómez Benet's sold-out concert at the Mexican Cultural Institute in November, the Ensamble Tierra Mestiza makes its debut at the Mexican Cultural Institute this summer. Featuring Gómez on harp, Gerardo Tamez on guitar, Carlos Garcia on flute and vocals, and Natalia Arroyo on violin and vocals, the award-winning group will play selections from their first two albums, 2008's Folia y Son and 2012's Ida y Vuelta.
Ensamble Tierra Mestiza's repertoire is wide enough to allow baroque originals as well as more recent pieces composed by musicians such as Astor Piazzolla, Heitor Villalobos and Arturo Márquez. The group has performed in prestigious venues in Mexico City, the United States, and Brazil. Check back soon for more information on this evening of music with Ensamble Tierra Mestiza.
