On Friday, October 10th, 2003 at 9PM, the Inter-Media Art Center (IMAC) in Huntington, Long Island will present an evening with STRUNZ & FARAH.

STRUNZ & FARAH have been called “the planet’s most staggering guitar duo” for their cross-cultural repertoire of Latin, Arab, European, Afro-Cuban and American styles. Bringing the cultural riches of their native lands to their highly virtuosic, rhythmic and improvisation-rich original compositions, these “fieras de la guitarra” (wild animals of the guitar) have profoundly influenced guitarists everywhere, creating a new genre.

Worldbeat - or perhaps Neuvo Flamenco - are the closest terms that describe Strunz & Farah’s music. Jorge Strunz was born in Costa Rica but grew up traveling the world with his diplomat father and began performing professionally as a teen. Ardeshir Farah was born in Iran, the nephew of a violinist for the Tehran Philharmonic, where he performed with many top Persian artists from the age of twelve. The duo first began collaborating in 1980, after Farah first saw Strunz performing with his group Caldera, a Latin fusion band. Since then, they have recorded ten albums, including their phenomenally successful Primal Magic and Americas, which won BillBoard’s World Music Album of the Year and a Grammy nomination, respectively.

Tickets for this performance are $35.00 ($26.50 for IMAC Members). For tickets or further information on this performance, or on other IMAC programs, call IMAC's 24-hour Arts-Line at (631) 549-ARTS.
