ETHEL with Robert Mirabal The River
“Vital and brilliant” ~ The New Yorker
One of America’s most adventurous string quartets, ETHEL blends uptown, conservatory musicianship with downtown genre-crossing, playing with the intensity of a rock band. In this cross-cultural collaboration with Robert Mirabal, Native American musician, instrument builder and three time Grammy Award winner, they evoke the magic and majestry of The River. Inspired by water as the embodiment of spirit, the audience is immersed in a flow of music, narrative, and ritual that evokes timeless Native American traditions through contemporary musical artistry. As delivered by these master performers, the effect is breathtaking, even ecstatic.
