Taos Center for the Arts News:
For nearly three decades Robert Mirabal has been sharing his music and spirit as part of his annual winter holiday show. Taos Pueblo’s native son returns to Taos Center for the Arts (TCA) Dec. 1-2 to once again present this acclaimed holiday tradition.
The community is invited to join Mirabal, his band Rare Tribal Mob and guests for this special celebratory night of song, story and dance focused on respect for family, culture, heritage and the land.
Tickets are available at Taos Center for the Arts Box Office at 133 Paseo del Pueblo Norte Taos, online or by calling 575.758.2052. Advance tickets are $27, and day of show tickets are $30. Mirabal’s Winter Holiday shows are presented by ¡Globalquerque! (www.Globalquerque.org).
Mirabal’s annual holiday performances have become the stuff of legend. Featuring his crack band Rare Tribal Mob, along with his daughters, the angelic singing Mirabal Sisters, the traditional Hail Creek Drummers & Singers and the innovative Sky House Dancers, the show is at once dynamic, engaging, mystical, rocking, colorful and captivating. It is more an event than a simple concert.
About Robert Mirabal
Two-time Grammy winner Mirabal has been described as a Native American “Renaissance man”. It is a fitting description for this musician, composer, painter, master craftsman, poet, actor, screenwriter, author, horseman, and farmer. But in Mirabal’s case, the whole is much greater than the sum of its parts.
An accomplished and renowned flute player and maker from Taos Pueblo, Mirabal performs worldwide, sharing flute songs, tribal rock, dance and storytelling. He has twice been named the Native American Music Award’s Artist of the Year and has received the Songwriter of the Year award three times. His breakthrough PBS musical production, Music From a Painted Cave, remains a benchmark of Native American traditional/rock fusion and storytelling. Mirabal is scoring the soundtrack for a 4-part Hulu Series to be released in 2024 and will be seen co-starring opposite Tony Todd in the upcoming film Road To Everywhere.
