  • 12:00 am
    Salsa! The Dance Sensation Dubbed by many the most popular social dance in the world, it is practiced today by people of all ages, ethnicities, and cultures. In South Florida, this Latin-flavored dance, infused with Caribbean and African roots, is performed with distinct passion and artistry. From the nightclubs to the performance halls, from senior centers to salsa schools, the dance that began as a folk tradition has exploded into the mainstream. Today, an array of stories, histories, and traditions are recounted on dance floors across the region.
    This documentary delves into the dance as an art form, as a bonding agent, and as a chronicler of history and family tradition. From the top performers at the Miami Salsa Congress to salsa school students, it reveals the compelling stories behind this cultural phenomenon. From Casino-style to Colombian, from Puerto Rican to Dominican, the varied forms of the dance help delineate cultural identities, while also creating connections and friendships.

    Compadre Huashayo Inspired by the Ecuadoran huashayo, an individual appointed to hire musicians for a special celebration, Grammy-winning Western classical composer Gabriela Frank - a member of the multicultural and genre-bending Silk Road Ensemble - decided to recreate a traditional Western composition and use only South America's native instruments. The resulting piece, "Compadre Huashayo," is a lively and intriguing cultural blend of tone and style.
    This Emmy-nominated documentary follows the story of this custom-designed composition, which fuses stylistic traits from two different musical traditions. It captures Frank's trips to local villages for inspiration, the workshopping of ideas across two continents, rehearsals with the 40-member ensemble La Orquesta de Instrumentos Andinos (Orchestra of Andean Instruments), the collaboration with award-winning Chilean conductor Alejandra Urrutia, and the sold-out opening night in the Ecuadoran capital of Quito. In interviews, Gabriela speaks about the project's tight four-month turnaround and the challenges of scoring a symphony made up entirely of indigenous instruments. Orchestra members - some of whom were self-trained - discuss undertaking the challenging, yet rewarding piece, and the deeper meaning behind the project.

  • 1:00 am
    Gordon Getty: There Will Be Music GORDON GETTY: THERE WILL BE MUSIC profiles a man born into extraordinary wealth who chose to concentrate largely on music rather than on the family business. Gordon Getty's father, J. Paul Getty, was at the time of his death in 1976, the richest man in the world. But as the progeny of his father's fourth marriage, Gordon also inherited a family history that included scandal and tragedy. However, Gordon has more than survived and he has earned, on his own, membership in the highest echelons of the worlds of the arts and ideas. He is the author of complex, groundbreaking economic theories, and is an influential philanthropist and patron of the arts. It is music, however, that is Getty's chief pursuit. His compositions reflect a rich imagination and mastery of technique, as well as his courage to go against the grain of modernism. Although he thinks that he would have become a composer no matter what, Gordon credits his wealth for giving him the unrestricted liberty to compose. Yet, he credits his passion for music for lifting the curse of his family's inherited wealth and for letting him avoid all the trappings of money. Ten years in the making, the documentary offers a glimpse into the life of this complex, creative, controversial octogenarian at home and around the globe (Napa, San Francisco, Mexico, Germany, Russia and Portugal), during an intensely productive period. GORDON GETTY: THERE WILL BE MUSIC delivers an intimate portrait of the composer and musician during the creation, rehearsals, recordings and performances, of two full-length operas, including Usher House, based on Edgar Allan Poe's The Fall of the House of Usher, cantata, and numerous solo and chamber works. duration 56:46   STEREO TVG (Secondary audio: none)
