Bryan Senti, Noah Hoffeld and the American Contemporary Music Ensemble perform Manu, from Senti’s upcoming album of the same name, which will be released on Naïve in June 2022.
A graduate of the Yale School of Music, Senti is a first-generation Cuban/Mexican- and Colombian-American, and combines western neo-classical traditions with the Latin American folk music his parents grew up with.
He says, ’I wanted to show in this video that these pieces are string chamber pieces at their essence. It felt like a nice homecoming to be able to work with the American Contemporary Music Ensemble on this. I was also very fortunate to collaborate with the director Jared M. Royal who understood how the record blended the traditional with the modern and was able to transpose this idea to a cold winter day in upstate New York.’
