Saturday, July 21st at 9pm, the Inter-Media Art Center in
Huntington, Long Island will host an evening of world music
with STRUNZ & FARAH.
& FARAH have been called “the planet’s most staggering
guitar duo” for their cross-cultural
repertoire of Latin, Arab, European, Afro-Cuban and American
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.
– or perhaps Neuvo Flamenco – are the closest terms that
describe Strunz & Farah’s
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
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.”
