World Premiere - Xantolo for solo percussion
A new work for solo percussion inspired by the Mexican Day of the Dead celebrations. The work has been created by Aphids artist Rosemary Joy and Mexican percussionist Evaristo Aguilar following visits to the villages of Tancoco, Tamalin and Tantayuca in the Huastecan area of Mexico.
Xantolo means 'Day of the Dead' in the Haustecan language and will be performed to an audience of 20 people at a time. Rosemary Joy's sculptural miniature percussion instruments have been performed in Australia, Belgium, Japan, Mexico, the Netherlands and Switzerland by some of the world's leading percussionists.
Percussionist Evaristo Aguilar lives in the Huastecan region in North East Mexico. He regularly works with international contemporary artists and composers to create new work.
Artist: Rosemary Joy; performer: Evaristo Aguilar (Mexico), instrument construction: Adam Stewart and Rosemary Joy.
