Con Alma

Composer Paola Prestini and vocalist/composer Magos Herrera present Con Alma, an operatic tableau on isolation that will be released as an album recording and live digital experience, featuring original works alongside classic songs from the Mexican and Jazz songbook. Created and recorded remotely during the COVID-19 pandemic, the project explores the question of how we can find communion and shared experience in a time of isolation. The album will be released on December 4, 2020 through National Sawdust Tracks, the in-house label of National Sawdust, and a live event will follow on December 13 under the direction of Ashley Tata. The event will present a shared educational and cultural experience to even the most remote communities in Mexico.
