Ongoing Work with "Cornbread & Tortillas"

Cornbread & Tortillas, an artistic and cultural collaboration between songwriter/dancer Carla Gover, fusion band Appalatin, and other theater artists and dancers continues after a successful inaugural event in Lexington, KY this past August, presented in conjunction with Casa de la cultura hispana.

Cornbread & Tortillas is a storied journey of music and dance which explores the common ground between Appalachia and various Latin American cultures. In this multi-disciplinary theatrical performance, a small group of musicians, dancers, and storytellers from throughout the Americas come together to share their songs and stories of family, identity, work, play, love, heritage, sense of place, and spirit. This rich production features a diverse variety of instruments including banjo, fiddle, mandolin, Andean flutes, charango, congas, cajon, and more, as well as mountain-style flatfooting and percussive dance from Latin America. The idea that "We've all got a place at the table" is a primary theme for the piece, which seeks to emphasize through the metaphorical concept of a shared meal the idea that there is room for everyone to live together.

The following is an assortment of photos from the project as well as a sample of one of Appalatin's songs marrying Appalachian and Andean music. Look for more details coming soon!
