Musicians and dancers from near and far will perform as the sun sets and the moon rises. Highlights include aerial dancers, SambaDá and violinist Scarlet Rivera who is known for her solo work as well as performances with Bob Dylan, Tracy Chapman and the Indigo Girls.
“Rivera will take us on a sonic journey around the world,” shares Nancy Tieken Lopez, the Artistic Director of Trails & Vistas. Rivera, who lives in Los Angeles, is one of the world’s most prominent and versatile violinists and one of the featured new artists participating in Trails & Vistas 2014.
SambaDá, a funk band based in Santa Cruz, dubbed the “the West Coast’s hottest Brazilian band,” playfully blends funk, reggae and salsa for a beat that brings audiences to their feet with high-energy percussion and danceable grooves during a visually dynamic show. SambaDá works and plays for social justice, peace and the respect of all cultures and peoples.
Based on outstanding reviews, award-winning flutist Ann Licater and the thirty-piece San Jose State University Symphony Orchestra will return to Lake Tahoe for the second annual Trails and Vistas World Concert.
