I've been looking forward to this for quite a while: Galician bagpipes!
" Cristina Pato & The Migrations Band in association with the Barcelona Jazz Festival
For the past fifteen years, Cristina Pato has been forging new creative paths for the Gaita or Galician bagpipe. In 1998, she became the first female Gaita player to release a solo album, followed by three more albums including the self produced The Galician Connection (2010). She’s engaged in creative collaboration with Yo-Yo Ma & the Silk Road Ensemble, the Chieftains, and the Chicago Symphony, fusing strains of Latin music, jazz, pop and contemporary music to bring her unique vision to life. . This Jazz Standard special event commemorates the release of Cristina Pato’s new Sunnyside album, Migrations, and is presented in association with the Barcelona Jazz Festival.
“This album is my personal and musical migration from the path I was supposed to follow,” says the artist, “and celebrates all the things that helped me to create my own way.”
If I get through to Thursday without the flu, then I'll be somewhat protected, if that statement about partial protection after 5 days is true. I remain baffled though as to what a partial protection against flu could possibly be. Either you're susceptible to the virus or you are not, right?
