Raíces presents songs from Desde el Puente

Raíces is a Latino Theatre Company dedicated to develop, nourish and produce modern and original works dealing with the Latino experience in order to preserve our "Raices" (roots).

If you were not lucky enough to attend one of their shows this past May - which won them a very well deserved "Proclamation by Buffalo's Mayor Brown" - this is your chance to enjoy and support a dedicated group of artists committed and inspired to preserve the Latino culture.
It is impossible not to connect with some or all stories in this play. Many of the themes are not just Latino inspired/ related but also strongly connected to all people with an immigrant background that at some point in their lives struggled to preserve and uphold the roots that defined their cultural heritage. Spanning from sexual prejudices, to women's struggles as mothers, partners and professionals, to life in seclusion - all stories are linked to the central issues of survival, the need to have a strong identity and the importance of acknowledging and accepting one's cultural roots. The play is funny, blunt and sad - all at once - a format that depicts stereotypes as they define subjects, societies and general opinions.
All proceeds from this show will be used to further promote and produce recordings of all original songs written for this play.

The album features leading Canadian jazz musicians, including JUNO-winning artists such as Sonia Johnson, Adrean Farrugia, Kevin Turcotte, John Macleod and Ernesto Cervini.

'For fans of crooners like Michael Bublé and Harry Connick, Jr. who also still listen to Fred Astaire and Gene Kelly, there is now Steven Taetz. The right warm voice bends, a vintage musical accompaniment, that exotic aroma and the perfect dress code, everything is there. The man also writes lyrics with an ironic sensual undertone that fit perfectly in this context. Irresistible!'

Joyce Carolyn in Concert


Joyce Carolyn is known especially for her portrayals of other singers, particularly Billie Holiday. Reviewer Ben Siegel admired her performance four years ago in 'Lady Day At Emerson's Bar and Grill' at the Paul Robeson Theatre: 'Where many resort to impersonation, Carolyn gives her interpretation of that raspy, caged voice.' Two years before that, she sang a tribute to Nina Simone, and The News' Colin Dabkowski noted some shining moments. She also has sung for The News' Jazz at the Albright-Knox concert series. Yet another News reviewer, Joseph Popiolkowski, called her a 'showstopper.'

Mareike Wiening's "Metropolis Paradise" Dave Douglas Greenleaf Records

The outcome is an extraordinary program 'with a planar modulating language and a propulsive drift. The music is part chamber jazz, part big-boned rock percussion, part free improvisation.' The New York Times

Mareike Wiening's background, both musical and personal is made up of the cultures of Germany, Norway, Denmark and the US. Her original compositions are influenced by diversity and she is recognized for her virtuously elegant way of playing the drums. With Rich Perry on tenor saxophone, Dan Tepfer on piano, Alex Goodman on guitar and Johannes Felscher on bass, Wiening leads a band of extraordinary musicians. Together they merge into one unit and don't hesitate to take spontaneous musical risks.

"Metropolis Paradise" is dedicated to Wiening's six year residence in New York. The music tells the daily battle of surviving as a female jazz musician, while commuting back and forth between Europe and the US.


Wiening studied Jazz Performance in Mannheim (Germany), Copenhagen (Denmark) and, after receiving a two-year full scholarship from the German government, graduated from New York University in 2014. She's actively been part of the New York jazz scene for the past six years and played with artists like John Zorn, Dayna Stevens, Rich Perry, Okkyung Lee, Fabian Almazan, Sasha Berliner, Florian Weber, Johannes Enders, and Jason Rigby. Her music has been performed at important venues like the Carnegie Hall, Blue Note NYC as well as in concert halls in Germany, Switzerland, France, The Netherlands, Norway, Denmark, Lithuania, Canada, US, Brazil and Slovenia.

Admission: TBD
