Works by Gabriela Ortiz in Los Angeles, Miami, and London!

We are very excited to announce that, this fall, three of Gabriela Ortiz's works will be performed by major orchestras in North America and Europe!

The Los Angeles Philharmonic, Gustavo Dudamel, and the Tambuco Ensemble will performed the world premiere of Yanga (LA Phil commission) at the Walt Disney Concert Hall (Los Angeles, CA) on October 27th.

Yanga tells the story Gaspar Yanga, an African prince captured and taken to Mexico as a slave in the 1500s. He led a revolt and founded the first independent settlement in the Americas, San Lorenzo de los Negros, thereby becoming the first black ruler in America.

The New World Symphony and Carlos Miguel Prieto will present Hominum: Suite for Orchestra at the New World Center in Miami, Florida, November 15-17.

Hominum plays with a kind of synaesthesia, creating a metaphorical sound world between certain colours and matter states to social, political, and philosophical concerns central to the human condition.

The Los Angeles Philharmonic and Gustavo Dudamel are going on tour to London, where they will present the European premiere of Téenek - Ivenciones de territorio at the Barbican Hall in the UK on November 19th.

Téenek is the language spoken in the Huasteca region of Mexico, and means "local man," evoking belonging and a human's relationship with the world around them. Téenek - Ivenciones de territorio alludes to a future free of borders, where our differences and diversity are recognized as our strength, and otherness is a reminder of our mutual belonging to the world and each other.
