Flute and percussion duo, Caballito Negro, with special guest Left Edge Percussion, present “Resist”, a diverse concert program utilizing six flutes, a truckload of percussion, spoken word, film and images. Resist is a passionate interplay of contemporary chamber groove and creative narratives, defining the word’s meaning and freight from surprising sources. Caballito Negro and Left Edge Percussion toured “Resist” in October in Northern California including concerts and educational presentations in Redding, Sacramento, the Center for New Music in San Francisco, and Stanford University, offering a fresh look into how to make chamber music. The duo, flutist Tessa Brinckman and percussionist Terry Longshore, perform intercultural work, in a fearless, ecstatic blend of modern and traditional aesthetics. Inspired by Federico García Lorca’s poem, “Canción de Jinete (1860)”, the duo collaborates with many prominent, innovative artists, creating contemporary music that pushes the flute and percussion repertoire to new heights, and always in the spirit of duende.
