Teatro Paraguas will host Katja Šulc, a Slovenian singer-songwriter intertwining poetry and music 7:30 p.m., Thursday, November 3 at 3205 Calle Marie in Santa Fe.

His latest album CARICIAS (Casete Mexico, 2021) pays tribute to Mexico and its poetry, with contemporary, folk and indigenous poems and songs. A the intimate self-portrait is drawn from personal stories, ancient traditions and modern flows, captivating the listener with emotional musical narration.

CARICIAS is Katja’s fourth album known for putting poetry to music. Having spent a large part of the last decade in the country, she dedicates an album to the land that influenced her in so many ways, to turn into songs and stories everything that touched her in this Incredible trip.

Katja’s musical journey began with MILA (2008), an album paying homage to Slovenian poet and actress Mila Kačič. TWISTED DELIGHT (2013) set to music by Katja words from poetry workshops in New York.

The album went viral and led to MTV European Music Awards. KAMLISAJLAN (2016), an enchanting tribute to Roma culture, is featuring contemporary Roma poets from the Balkans and Eastern Europe. Created in France under the supervision of the Roma activist prof. Marcel Courthiade, performed in Roma, produced in Mexico – the mix turns out to be quite unique and bewitching.

The album is characterized by looping folk melodies and simple chord changes, wrapped in repetitive world music rhythmic patterns. A year later, it expanded to KAMLISAJLAN REMIXED (2017), a version created in collaboration with several established producers from Slovenia, Mexico and Argentina.

Tickets are $20 and can be purchased online here. For reservations, call 505.424.1601 to purchase tickets at the door.

This concert is sponsored by the Slovenian government and made possible in part by New Mexico Arts, a division of the Department of Cultural Affairs, and the community of Santa Fe Foundation.
