New York, NY –
Two percussionists, making a life together and building a family to the rhythm of dozens of drums. She is Filipino-American, he is Cuban-American and they make music that combines both their cultures - and many others. WNYC’s Siddhartha Mitter spent time with Susie Ibarra and Roberto Rodriguez for our ongoing series about musicians, The New Americans.
Susie Ibarra and Roberto Rodriguez perform their Electric Kulintang project tonight at the Abrons Arts Center on Grand Street at 8 pm. For information on tonight's show, visit www.henrystreet.org.
