A great discussion, originally broadcast live on WKCR, with Soles of Duende: Amanda Castro, Arielle Rosales and Brindha Guha. They’ll be preforming with Frank Malloy IV & Roshni Samlal at the Ragas Live Festival at 11pm.
Birthed in East Harlem, the women of Soles arrived with a single, transparent question: how do they find truth, connection, and storytelling through the rhythms of their respective cultures? Based in the rhythms of Tap (Amanda Castro), Flamenco (Arielle Rosales) and Kathak (Brinda Guha), their mission created the fire that is Soles of Duende. They devote their work together to yield nothing but joy and music, and to bring clarity to how they connect given their beautiful differences.
