Guatemalan-born singer-songwriter Gaby Moreno is joined by the women of Latin Alternative quartet LADAMA and the Grammy-nominated chamber orchestra Metropolis Ensemble (Andrew Cyr, conductor) to perform music from ¡Spangled!—her collaborative Nonesuch album with American musician, songwriter, arranger and producer Van Dyke Parks. The set celebrates the migration of song across the Americas and spans more than a century, including a bolero from Panama, a  bossa nova from Brazil and an elegiac ballad from the Southwest United States.

The only music series that exclusively presents new work resulting from collaborations, Ecstatic Music has been hailed as “a who's who of the music scene” (WQXR) and "audacious combinations and post-genre hybrids" (The New Yorker). The Ecstatic Music series is curated by composer Judd Greenstein.
