(10-15-2008)

Gypsy musician, AnnaMaria Cardinalli-Padilla, PhD, will perform at 7 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 21 in Carson Auditorium, located in the Student Union Building on First Street and Stadium Drive. Cardinalli-Padilla is a pre-eminent classical guitar virtuoso with multiple personalities, capturing the gypsy spirit of duende in flamenco and a mezzo-soprano with the velvet Mediterranean voice that embodies the most sensual roles. The event is free and open to the public.

According to the website http://www.annamaria.ws/ Cardinalli-Padilla has a passion for her culture and passion for educating herself and others about its richness and beauty. This intensity of dedication has led Cardinalli-Padilla into possession of a truly unique combination of accomplishments.

She identifies herself first as a musician. As a classical and flamenco guitarist, her style speaks of her proud heritage as an eighteenth-generation Santa Fean, a link to the world's best-preserved enclave of Spanish colonial culture. As a singer, her voice reveals all the warmth of her Mediterranean ancestry.
