Sofía Viola in concert

 

Argentina’s Sofía Viola mixes soul, bolero, cumbia, tango and rock into a powerful performance that showcases her unconditional love for Latin American folklore. With her guitar and charangón (a relative of the lute), she composes songs that speak of love, ecology and junk food, all with the intensity of Latin American tradition, but with a contemporary twist. Performing from her mother’s colorful home in Buenos Aires, her provocative and sometimes acidic humor will lead you on a journey to discover the roots of Argentina through the characters and landscapes that inhabit her songs.

Fidel Nadal in concert

 

Latin Grammy Award nominee Fidel Nadal is an Afro-Argentinian singer rooted in reggae, dancehall and urban styles. The son of an anthropologist and a leading advocate for the recognition of black Argentines, Fidel Nadal’s ideology is deeply influenced by the Rastafarian culture of Jamaica and Haiti. Hits like “International Love” convey messages of Pan-African consciousness and Afro-Argentine identity. Performing from a recording studio in Mexico City, Nadal and his band bring their groove into your home through this special virtual concert for FirstWorks.
