NUTRIA NN at Museo del Barrio, June 3, Outdoors, Free

Come and invite your friends to this special performance of Nutria NN as part of the Museum Mile Festival, where Fifth Avenue in Manhattan (between 82 St. and 105 St., East side of Central Park) is closed to traffic and all the museums located there (MET, Guggenheim, Museo del Barrio, etc) open their doors for free and offer special programs.
Nutria NN plays at 8pm at 5th Ave and 103 St. The weather report says it will be a very nice evening to enjoy Latin American music en El Barrio, by the Park :)
I hope to see you there.

About Nutria NN:
Nutria NN is the stage name of Christian Torres-Roje. While studying philosophy in the 90s he was a member of the experimental trio Maestro in his native Santiago de Chile. In 2004, a few years after moving to New York and supported by guest musicians, Torres-Roje debuted as Nutria NN, performing on the Lower East Side and in Williamsburg. To date this Brooklyn based solo/band project has independently released two CDs (Hueso Records, CD Baby), has welcomed many guest musicians and has collaborated on audio and video-art projects some of which have been shown in places as diverse as Witte de Witt (Holland), Adelaide Festival of Arts (Australia), Feria Arco (Spain), Moscow Biennale (Russia) and Chelsea Museum (USA). The music of Nutria NN is rooted in South American folk but enthusiastically includes elements from different cultures and styles of music new and old. "Torres-Roje," wrote Roberta Smith of The New York Times, "gives an almost exquisite poignancy to the lyrics." For the show on Tuesday, June 3, at the Museo del Barrio, coinciding with Chilean artist Lotty Rosenfeld's presentation, Nutria NN has prepared a special set that will offer a personal panoramic view of Chilean political music of the last fifty years, mixing original material with Chilean and Latin American classics, including songs by Violeta Parra, Victor Jara, Los jaivas, Los prisioneros, Atahualpa Yupanqui and Facundo Cabral.
