Vamo a Gozá  Album Release Party

The new sounds that Irka Mateo introduces with the album Vamo a Gozá is a fusion of folk melodies and rhythms from the Dominican countryside—itself a fusion of Afro, Indigenous, and European influences. Mateo embraces an array of traditions: dance melodies driven by the accordion, guitar, and percussion. Through poetic lyrics she tells the stories of the Dominican people and those of other cultures, delivering songs of love and life. Mateo and her stellar band, La Tirindanga, will take the stage to showcase the new album. Be set to enjoy an exhilarating performance that fills the room with joy, dance, and musical enchantment.

 

Irka Mateo is a global citizen, singer-songwriter, folk music researcher, and front woman of La Tirindanga. With her songs she expands the boundaries of Dominican music and builds bridges to Latin America, the Caribbean, Africa, and the United States.
