“The strings of ETHEL bring a unique context to Mirabal’s powerful ability to tell a story… and create tantalizing dialog as only eloquent conversationalists could.” – All About Jazz

The River continues ETHEL’s deeply successful nine-year collaboration with Native American musician, instrument builder and three-time Grammy Award- winner Robert Mirabal. The live performance immerses the audience in a flow of music, narrative and ritual, created by ETHEL and Mirabal exclusively for this program, evoking timeless Native American traditions through contemporary artistry. As delivered by these master performers, the effect is breathtaking, even ecstatic.

From “An Kha Na” to “PeaceCalls,” through rushing rapids and still, sacred spaces, ETHEL and Robert Mirabal evoke the magic and majesty of the river which connects us all. Influences were drawn in from Hawaii, Arizona, Mexico, Ecuador, Morocco, Nigeria, India, Mongolia, Tibet, Japan and Soviet Georgia. The sound is dazzling, and the spirit full of generosity, love and gratitude. Every audience will find their hearts healed and their hope raised.
