Calle Sur Performs Sept. 26

Calle Sur
9/7/2006 —
Penn State York's Cultural and Performing Artists series starts the year off Tuesday, Sept. 26, with Calle Sur, a Latin musical group at 7 p.m. in the Pullo Family Performing Arts Center.  Calle Sur is what happens when you combine man and woman, black and white, urban and rural.  Their performance is free and open to the public.
 
Seeing Calle Sur is living proof that the terms "Hispanic" and "Latino" can't be summarized. Ed East is Panamanian. His upbringing in Panama City meant noise, hustle, bustle, and those chaotic smells and sights so characteristic of any metropolis. Karin Stein, his Colombian partner, brings to the music of Calle Sur the perspective of her upbringing in rural Colombia. His veins were filled with the fusion of world beats converging in a big city. Her soul harbored haunting cowboy tunes from her traditional Llanero culture, a fascinating people whose music remains one of Latin America's best kept secrets.

Calle Sur (Kah-yeh SOOR), Spanish for "South Street," has traveled nationwide and internationally, has been featured on a variety of TV shows, and has provided the film score for three documentaries. Calle Sur's lively concerts are sprinkled with anecdotes and humor, which make audiences remember these talented Latin musicians for years to come.
