Lourdes Pérez

When: Sat., Jan. 24, 7 p.m. and Sun., Jan. 25, 3 p.m. 2015

Born in San Sebastián, Puerto Rico, singer-songwriter, poet and guitarist Lourdes Pérez has released eight albums showcasing her distinct contralto voice. For her multimedia project Dulce Vigilante, Pérez converted a collection of her mother’s stories into songs with an accompanying book illustrated by young artist Andrea María Carnaval. Pérez’s nostalgic snapshot of life in rural Puerto Rico comes to light via a “musical heritage experience” combining a book and CD release with two concerts featuring Miriam Pérez on guitar and Tony Mapeyé on cuatro.
