Resonancias del Alma Latina: Un Viaje Sonoro a Través de Fiebre

In August 2023, artists from Villa Clara carried out a tribute to Puerto Rican singer Calma Carmona at the Valhalla Viking Bar in Santa Clara, Cuba. Abraham Machado Álvarez, Amilkar Chacón Iznaga, Laura Eternod Arencibia, Rocío Bell Carrazana Rodríguez, María Fernanda Chacón Rivera, Reinier Luaces González, Shalay López Abreu, Marlie de la Caridad Osorio Vergel, and Yordan Segredo joined forces in an exhibition entitled Fiebre, a stunning showcase of contemporary art, cultural diversity, and a celebration of the intersection of different art forms. Through their works, the artists explore the poetry and music of Calma Carmona, seeking to connect with the Afro-Caribbean essence and the richness of Latin American and Caribbean culture.

For this iteration of Fiebre, on view through August 17 at the Silos at Sawyer Yards Bay 200 Gallery, artist and organizer Aime Rosales joins the artist cohort, creating an immersive installation entitled Cancionero. The work consists of suspended prints on mylar that echo selections from songwriters of the past, creating a dialogue between culture of the past and the present. Rosales initially transported this project to the City of Houston as a collateral activity in the Houston Latino Film Festival in March of 2024.

Join Aime Rosales for an opening reception on Friday, July 19, from 6-8pm in the gallery and see this fascinating showcase firsthand!
