Two extraordinary local musicians—singer-songwriter Edna Vazquez and jazz pianist Darrell Grant—unite for a concert of songs based on letters written by mothers at an immigrant detention center in South Texas. The bilingual compositions, which will be accompanied by immigrant photos from Portlander Adolfo Cantú-Villareal, span styles from battle cries to lullabies. Sample lyric: “May they have dreams that I did not have, and may they know that they will always have me.”
Friday's concert is at the Alberta Rose Theatre, while Saturday's takes place at the Glenn & Viola Walters Cultural Arts Center in Hillsboro.
Every day at 7:30pm between May 10 and May 11
