Lakewood Cultural Center is thrilled to announce that Pascuala Ilabaca y Fauna will open the 2017-2018 Lakewood Cultural Center Presents season at 7:30 p.m. on Thursday, Sept. 28. Accordion-wielding Ilabaca is a favorite on the new scene of young Chilean singer-songwriters. Her music is rooted in traditional sounds while integrating shades of jazz, pop, and rock influenced by a colorful childhood living in Barcelona, Chile, Mexico and India. Ilabaca and her stellar band, Fauna, replaces the originally scheduled Cristina Pato, who is no longer able to perform on that date.
Pascuala Ilabaca y Fauna have performed all over the world, winning audiences from Festival Lollapalooza Chile to the Berlin Philharmonic. In 2010, Ilabaca won the Guitarpin de Oro from the Festival Huaso de Olmué and the Audience Award for Best Chilean Videoclip for "Lamenta la Canela." What sets Ilabaca apart from other Chilean artists is her deeply rooted Indian influences, including the incorporation of a Hindu table and electric guitars into her band. The resulting vibrant, multicultural sound prompted former Chile President Michelle Bachelet to invite her on a tour through India. Ilabaca's colorful stage presence and sweet, powerful voice make for an unforgettable concert experience, one that is not to be missed.
Tickets start at $20 and are available at 303-987-7845, Lakewood.org/LCCPresents or the Lakewood Cultural Center Box Office, 470 S. Allison Parkway (Wadsworth and West Alameda Avenue).
The 2017-2017 Lakewood Cultural Center Presents season is generously supported by the Scientific and Cultural Facilities District (SCFD), with appreciation to the members of the Scientific and Cultural Facilities District, and Denver Post Community, which improve and enrich the lives of those in our community.
