15 Jul Earth Day Celebration Jesus Hidalgo and The Pachamama Project
The Miami On Stage series will feature the following performance at the new On.Stage Black.Box Theater at Miami-Dade County Auditorium:
April 22, 2011 “Earth day Celebration: Jesus Hidalgo and The Pachamama Project will present Sistema Dos (System Two), a multi-media project that integrates environmental consciousness with music, featuring invited artists such as Peruvian folkloric group Kuyayky, and El Grupo de Danza del Centro Cultural Boliviano MASIS. Other guests will include Shamans Jose Fernando Andrade from Colombia, Joe Iron Eagle of the Apache Chicagua Nation, and U.S.-based Lee Emerson. This project proposes a parallel relationship between the minutiae of everyday life and a path that connects us to the heart of Mother Earth. The songs demonstrate a solid influence rooted in ancestral, classical and pop genres, and contain a powerful philosophical message designed to raise public consciousness in order to promote societal concern for the protection and preservation of the Planet’s natural resources, along with its flora and fauna, as well as the ancient wisdom of Amazonian indigenous tribes that celebrate internal wisdom, love, life and the possibility of a better world.
