ETHEL string quartet
Robert MIrabal, flute

ETHEL will present new performances of its acclaimed show The River, an integral journey in instrumental virtuosity, song and storytelling. The tour comes in the wake of its 2016 NAMA-nominated release of the same title (Innova Recordings), and furthers ETHEL's wildly successful nine-year collaboration with Native American musician, actor, writer, instrument builder and three-time GRAMMY® Award-winner Robert Mirabal. Here, ETHEL and Mirabal take inspiration from Water as the embodiment of the Spirit, and evoke the magic and majesty of "the river" which connects us all, with the live performance immersing the audience in a flow of music, narrative and ritual. The music of The River evokes timeless Native American traditions, re-imagined through the contemporary ear. The project has been featured by PRI's The World, NPR's Native America Calling, and, after making its premiere at the University of Washington, the Seattle Times wrote that the live show, "resides somewhere beyond the intersection of ceremony and show biz, at a place where multicultural collaboration becomes sacred art." As delivered by these master performers, the effect is breathtaking, even ecstatic."
