On Saturday, July 21st at 9pm, the Inter-Media Art Center in Huntington, Long Island will host an evening of world music 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 travelling 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 nine albums, including their phenomenally successful Primal Magic and Americas, which won BillBoard’s World Music Album of the Year and a Grammy nomination, respectively.  Their latest release is Wild Muse – an exuberant collection of 11 compositions spanning the breadth of their experience.  Their back-up band features an international cast of players, fleshing out a sound that has been called “an incendiary blend of flamenco color and driving Afro-Latin rhythms.”

Tickets for this performance are $30.00 general public ($22.50 for IMAC Members) and can be obtained by calling IMAC's 24-hour Arts-Line at (631) 549-ARTS. Tickets can also be purchased at the theater from noon to 6PM, Tuesdays to Fridays, and after 2PM on the day of the show.
