(Deep voice, emphatic, manly …)

Berbers of that country are we come and tell the truth of this story came to tell. How we are called to obey the Emperor Caliph, how we gave our last breath for his victories and booties and how spending time we tried to forget

and the insult was death and blood,

of which we live in a hostile and arbitrary time,

until the patient is high and take in our hands the destiny of the Caliphs and all his empire eaten by moths

and we reduced to ashes his arrogance and cowardice.

It was that life and death now, because the mercenary and the soldier are given the peace when they have served their devastating fate.

So we came from the desert. And thirst and revenge for our dead father brought us here. And here we fought in fierce steeds and sow death in the garden of paradise that we came for.

But today, May 30, 1013, (ie in Arabic and Christian calendar) at the gates of GARNATA we write another destination to our condemnation of wandering executioners, because our Peace be invincible and create a realm of water and myrtle,

of fertile orchards and watch grow havens where our children and our women … smile.

Metamorphic Transformation

Observing metamorphic transformations in nature allows us to extrapolate that method to humans and the arts. That is to say, the foundational substance becomes a supporting substance retained in the new identity. These essential elements are absorbed, now invisible to the observer, while the transformed form creates a stunning awareness of the new.

Likewise, our compositions make use of a similar pattern of creative mutation, if you will. We begin with folk songs that poet Federico Garcia Lorca chose, rescued from oblivion, transcribed for the piano and performed in various venues. Following a trajectory of revealing hidden elements, we submit them to an unexpected metamorphic process. The melodic essences of the old songs are those that give musical meaning to different poems that Lorca wrote.

Additionally, in his short life, he created diverse artistic works, including poetry, music, and literature. He also created formidable works for the theater, while also embracing other mediums such as painting. His contemporaries and artistic collaborators included Joan Miro and Salvador Dali.

“Lorca in the Keys of Hands and Voice,” a concert conceived and presented by Adam Kent and Fernando Barros, is a musical innovation inspired by Lorca’s example. Lorca collected melodies from the Spanish folklore repertoire and transcribed them for the piano using two different concepts: 1) adapting the old melodies to various of his poem, as for example, ANDA JALEO to the poem “Preciosa y el Aire”; and 2) singing the old songs using the expressive, emotive characteristics inherent in flamenco music.
