CAMA at Home

In this issue...

Chicano Batman

Since 2008, Chicano Batman has blended the many sounds of L.A. into a genre-bending mix that offers both societal critiques and an unabashed dance party. The band’s SOUND/STAGE set features songs from their latest album, Invisible People, which has been called “their funkiest political statement yet.” (Beverly Bryan, Remezcla)

Episode 8 of SOUND/STAGE
Episode available for streaming starting 10:00AM each Friday

EPISODE 8: Friday, November 13

Chicano Batman



CAMA’s long-time sister organization, the Los Angeles Philharmonic, has created Sound/Stage, a nine-part series that is being streamed for free from the LA Phil’s website, continuing this Friday, November 13 with Episode 8, with the final Episode 9 coming on November 20.  

As CAMA is unable to offer live orchestral concerts this season, we encourage you to join us in viewing this innovative project recently filmed on the vast stage of the beloved Hollywood Bowl, with no audience and with the film crew and musicians masked and safely separated.

CAMA and the LA Phil share a history of being founded in 1919 and have partnered to present world-class music each year in Santa Barbara for over a century. Our pasts and futures are closely tied, and we both look forward to another century of close collaboration. The Sound/Stage project was an expensive endeavor, and CAMA encourages you to support the LA Phil with a contribution to the PLAY YOUR PART fundraising campaign.

UCSB Arts & Lectures will feature Sheku Kanneh‑Mason and Isata Kanneh‑Mason in a free virtual concert event on Sunday, November 22. The concert is a gratitude gift to the community as part of A&L's virtual House Calls events series. You can see the rest of the lineup and register on this link.

Sunday, November 22 / 5:00PM PST / Virtual Event

FREE Event — Part of A&L's House Calls Series — Registration Required

“They played with such ease and accuracy... Call it sibling harmony.” The Guardian (U.K.)

At only 21 years old, Sheku Kanneh‑Mason is one of the most sought-after cellists. His performance for more than 35 million people worldwide at the wedding of Prince Harry and Megan Markle moved the audience to tears, and he won BBC Young Musician in 2016 only two years earlier. His 24-year-old sister Isata released her first solo piano CD last year, hitting No.1 on the U.K. classical charts. In this special recital from their home in Nottingham, England, the duo will astound with their tight-knit communication, bringing exuberance, humility and chamber music at its most intimate. Followed by a conversation with Santa Barbara Independent Executive Arts Editor CHARLES DONELAN.

Those registered will be able to replay this virtual event for one week following the live stream.
