early in the year with the eclectic, vibrant sounds of Diluvio!
Their original pieces range from reggae and jazz to salsa and samba.
Diluvio! is a pan global poetry and world view
musical ensemble which features the talents of Julian Russell Brown,
Andrew Houston, Krishna Harrison-Munoz, Arthur Chinchera, Brian
Fischer, Patricio Morales and Gilberto Rodriguez. Diluvio! infuses
Spanish, English, and Portuguese into Afro-Cuban, Carribean, South
American, Australian and Middle Eastern melodies to create an uplifting
sound all their own. Utilizing instruments from Africa, Peru, Ecuador,
Egypt, Cuba, Brazil and Australia, the passion of Diluvio! will
enthrall and empower you.
Diluvio! is a purposeful alliteration from the
Spanish diluvia, meaning the rains before the flood, a deluge of
music and poetry. From the experimental Aboriginal “didj
bath” to the frenetic Brazilian berimbau, Diluvio! springs
forth from that inevitable dialogue between the timelessness of
traditional instruments, poetry, and song to the imposition of
the present multicultural language of modern world music and fusion.
Diluvio! is as much a conversation about society as it is about
music and poetry. The ensemble uses this language of music and
poetry to celebrate the idea and power of “Conscious Community” spreading
in Sacramento and around the world.
More than a band, Diluvio! creates the context
for this community educating by entertaining, elevating by interacting
with one another and the audience. Passivity is not an option.
Through each piece, Diluvio! hopes to travel with you to distant
lands and unfamiliar histories only to fly full circle to explore
the rivers and landscape of Sacramento. Diluvio! is that cycle
of flood and rebirth and looks forward to dancing with you in the
Come experience and enjoy Diluvio!’s artful
combination of poetry and music firmly rooted in classical, global
traditions and informed by creative proposals and modern mixtures.
