TIERRA Y CIELO (Earth & Sky): An audio-visual Ritual Performance by NAOBA

Monday, 9 August 5:30 p.m. (During our opening reception.)

The Mesoamerican artist NAOBA brings us the joy to connect with all of our senses to the environments of our Planet Earth. She will take us on a musical and visual journey to the jungles and the high sierras, where birds caress the sky, and into the deep oceans where cetaceans thrive with their ancestral songs that connect with the ancient cosmos. This hybrid electro-acoustic concert made especially for the opening ceremony of the AOS & SCO 2021 meeting, Birds of Many Feathers Flock Together, tells the tale of the diversity and bounty of the earth’s landscapes with all of its creatures, creating a bridge to and dialogue with the natural world, to remind us, reconnect us, and rekindle our relationship to Life. Join us for a special performance from NAOBA music, featuring ambient sights and sounds of nature alongside beautiful bird calls from across Latin America.
