TIerra de Luz
Spain, land of light. Music, stories, and images, inspired by the poetry of Federico García Lorca, interpreted through dance, song, and music, infused with flamenco.
Tierra de luz, cielo de tierra.
Land of light, sky of earth.
– Federico García Lorca
This project began as a collaboration between singer Linda Miller and flamenco dancer Anastassiia La Musa, inspired by Spanish classical music, flamenco, and poetry by Federico García Lorca. In one of his poems, Lorca referred to Spain as Tierra de Luz, which inspired the name of our project. Together with Mexican flamenco guitarist and singer Ricardo Sánchez and violinist Jonathan Lewis, of 12 Musas Flamenco, we explore music by Granados, Manuel de Falla, Villa-Lobos, and songs collected by Lorca himself, through the lens of Spanish classical and flamenco music/dance.
