Carol Lipnik and Tareke Ortiz
Bio: Carol Lipnik's music does more than evoke a shadow-world of mysterious, often misunderstood creatures, from sideshow freaks and b-movie monsters to love's obsessive victims. It creates that world, bringing it into audible being through her stunningly versatile four-octave voice and expressive, impeccably crafted songs. Her repertoire - ranging from mad, carnival-ride tangos and waltzes to dramatic Bowie-esque rock and intricate, semi-acoustic art songs is unified by the singer's visionary commitment to the beauty of strangeness and the strangeness of beauty.
Tareke Ortiz is a film and theatre composer, pianist, singer, actor, cabaret performer and currently Artistic Director of the international arts summit at Cumbre Tajin, México. His work has been part of a quite diverse range of programs: visual arts, theatre, cabaret, experimental music and film festivals, sociopolitical summits on the notions of inter culture, gender and human rights.
