Migguel Anggelo: Another Son Of Venezuela says
Brooklyn-based, Venezuelan-born dynamo Migguel Anggelo brings his acclaimed show “Another Son of Venezuela” to the DIA as part of its Friday Night Live! concert series. With his virtuosic band The Immigrants and a pair of sensational singers, Anggelo will create a kaleidoscope of vocal theatrics and poetic storytelling that is both hilarious and touching. Presented by Culture Lab Detroit, the performance will take place in the museum’s Detroit Film Theatre auditorium and is free with museum admission, which is free for residents of Wayne, Oakland and Macomb counties.

Developed with and directed by Obie Award winner David Drake and musical director Mau Quiros, “Another Son of Venezuela” explores the very personal immigration themes of love, loss, family and national pride, as well as the challenges of claiming an authentic identity in the United States. By combining Latin, pop and folk music classics with his and Quiros’ original compositions, Anggelo forges a new music-theater experience in an increasingly bilingual world.

Culture Lab Detroit will also hold a special panel discussion on art and the immigrant experience with Anggelo and local artists on Saturday, Nov. 12 from 1 to 3 p.m. at 1301 Broadway Ave., Gary Simmons installation. The panel is free and open to the public. Learn more and RSVP here: bit.ly/culturelabtalk.
