Artist in residence, ETHEL, announces new album, "The River"

Visiting Artists

Denison’s artist in residence, ETHEL, has a new album, “The River,” and it’s getting great reviews.

An article on Delmarva Public Radio notes:

“The members of ETHEL collaborated with Native American artist Robert Mirabal from Taos Pueblo, New Mexico. Their album draws influences from indigenous musical traditions all over the United States — and from places as far-flung as Morocco, Nigeria, Tibet and the country of Georgia.

“But it’s also deeply personal, according to cellist Dorothy Lawson.

“”The River’ as a body of music is like a self-portrait of the quartet with Robert Mirabal. You know, it’s kind of a musical selfie.’

“The album was recorded in 2015 at Mirabal’s home on the Taos Pueblo Indian Reservation in northern New Mexico.

“Mirabal, a three-time Grammy Award winner, says he drew inspiration for the album from his own cultural traditions.”
