Notes for Growth Foundation brings light to New York with Tremün: Celebrating Indigenous Roots — their debut concert at Carnegie Hall’s Weill Recital Hall.

Tremün means "growth" in Mapudungun, the language of native Chilean people known as the Mapuche, and this concert is a celebration of music by and inspired by Indigenous peoples around the world including Peru, Mexico, Jamaica, and Chile.

Performers include NFG Ambassadors and internationally acclaimed musicians Sonya Headlam, soprano, Alejandro Mendoza, violinist, Enriqueta Somarriba, piano, among others. The concert concludes with legendary opera singer Verónica Villarroel in a performance that is the first of its kind, in which Ms. Villarroel will perform songs in Aymara, from the north of Chile.

Set to premiere are nine new works by five Latinx composers: Patricio Molina, Ramón Catalán, Aina Sandoval, Carlos Zamora, and Sebastián Vergara. Of special mention are the direct collaborations with Mapuche poets Roxana Miranda Rupailaf and María Lara Millapan. This program is posed to amplify their powerful words and voices to a new audience in New York City.
