Catarina dos Santos: At the Mermaid’s Feet

Harbor Conservatory for the Performing Arts is pleased to announce that faculty member singer/songwriter Catarina dos Santos will be performing with Raquel Z. Rivera in “At the Mermaid’s Feet: A musical conversation across the ocean: Young Roots Performance Series at HOSTOS.


Liltingly sweet yet powerful melodic conversations caress across the trans-oceanic waters to wash up at THE MERMAID’S FEET. Singer/songwriter Catarina dos Santos’ music and soul travels between and around Angola, Portugal, Cape Verde, Brazil and New York as Raquel Z. Rivera’s voice and lyrics glide above the waves embracing Puerto Rico, the Dominican Republic and New York with powerful words that break through feminine myths centuries old.

Combined, the compositions of these two emerging artists are rooted in the legendary history of travel across the ocean that separates Europe, Africa and the New World. THE MERMAID’S FEET cross this ocean as part of these two artists’ individual creative process forging friendships of the soul entwined in a musical collaboration that brings light and focus on each other’s trans-oceanic musical voyage.  Join us at THE MERMAID’S FEET!

May 6 & 7th   7:30 pm
