Dance Band Night:Federico Britos’ Hot Club of The Americas

North Beach Bandshell

Every 2nd Thursday, it’s Dance Band Night! This month Northbeach Bandshell presents Federico Britos’ Hot Club of the Americas.

For years Federico Britos has performed sets all over the world that include the music of the Hot Club of France and Latin Jazz. Carlomagno Araya, Federico’s drummer, had the idea of recording music frequently performed by Stephane Grappelli but in Latin Jazz styles. From this concept, and the friendly contribution of Federico’s friend, Nat Chediak, was born the name Hot Club of The Americas. It is a band that performs a unique blend of Latin and Gypsy Jazz.

75 Years of EFE Images: Wars, Triumphs, Disasters, People and Politics
February 17 – August 28, 2016

Miami Dade College’s (MDC) Museum of Art + Design (MOA+D) in collaboration with the Lynn and Louis Wolfson II Florida Moving Image Archives is pleased to present the exhibition 75 Years of EFE Images: Wars, Triumphs, Disasters, People and Politics. The exhibition, drawn from the recent donation of over 75 photographs from Agencia EFE, the world’s leading Spanish-language news agencywill open to the public on February 17, 2016 at MOA+D located within the College’s Historic Freedom Tower. 

75 Years of EFE Images: Wars, Triumphs, Disasters, People and Politics, is an exhibition and collection of photographs donated to MDC’s Permanent Art Collection and the Lynn and Louis Wolfson II Florida Moving Image Archives. The exhibition includes photographs of Ibero-American and world history and features images of historic importance, such as the meeting between Francisco Franco and Adolf Hitler at the start of World War II, Princess Diana, Martin Luther King, as well as photos of Celia Cruz, Cantinflas and Gabriel Garcia Marquez. The collection will continue to grow, as the agency donates a historically significant photograph that encapsulates the most important headline of each year.

In 2015, Agencia EFE, the Spanish international news agency, celebrated 75 years of service. The world’s fourth largest wire service, EFE has documented and reported the most important global events through words and images. In celebration of its 75th anniversary, EFE compiled a collection of its most arresting and impactful images for each year in operation. Featuring photographs from EFE’s award-winning photojournalists, the exhibition captures pivotal moments in history including coronations of kings and queens, presidential visits, star-studded moments, physical triumphs and political turmoil. EFE was born in 1939 in a Spain devastated by the Civil War and began its expansion in the Americas in 1966 with the opening of its first bureaus in the region. Today, EFE operates in 180 cities in 120 countries, employing more than 3,000 news professionals from 60 nationalities.

“The Museum of Art + Design is thrilled to present this important exhibition that not only encompasses achievements by photojournalists but also the depiction of pivotal moments in Ibero-American history.” said Jeremy Mikolajczak, MOA+D’s executive director and chief curator. “We are honored by the generous on-going donation from EFE, as it expands our diverse collection and provides continued collaboration opportunities between the Museum and the Lynn and Louis Wolfson II Florida Moving Image Archives.”

Camille A. Brown – Black Girl: Linguistic Play

Lehman Theatre MDC North Campus

Using the rhythmic play of double-dutch, steppin’, tap, ring shout and other African-American social dances, dancer/choreographer Camille A. Brown addresses the complexity of carving out a positive identity as a black female in urban American culture.

In a society where black women are often only portrayed in terms of their strength, resiliency, or trauma, this performance represents a more nuanced spectrum of black womanhood in a racially and politically charged world. Brown, who danced with the Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater, Ronald K. Brown’s Evidence, and Rennie Harris’ Pure Movement, has been hailed as “Gutsy. Wild. Smart. Original,” by Dance Magazine. Miami debut.

The Zombies Featuring Colin Bluntsone and Rod Argent

Parker Playhouse

Aside from the Beatles and perhaps the Beach Boys, no mid-’60s rock group wrote melodies as gorgeous as those of The Zombies. Dominated by Colin Blunstone’s breathy vocals, choral backup harmonies, and Rod Argent’s shining jazz—and classical-influenced organ and piano—the band sounded utterly unique for its era. Their 1968 album, Odessey and Oracle, a near-masterpiece of pop/psychedelia, is ranked 80 on Rolling Stone magazine’s list of the 500 Greatest Albums of All Time. This early British group came and went like a flash, but they left a plethora of haunting, completely original-sounding songs. Tickets available here.
