Two exciting new pieces from composer/percussionist Susie Ibarra, whose dynamic drumming has driven the bands of William Parker, David S. Ware, Pauline Oliveros, Derek Bailey and Mephista. Written for her trio, featuring pianist Craig Taborn and violinist Jennifer Choi, the title track FOLKLORIKO is a musical portrait of a day in the life of a Filipino field worker—a kaleidoscopic suite that effortlessly moves from folk to classical, jazz and back again. Also included is a brilliant composition for percussion featuring Susie with her husband, percussionist Roberto Rodriguez.
