SANTA FE BANDSTAND: Lifesongs Village Band
Wed, Jul 8 onetime noon - 1 PM
Location: Santa Fe Plaza

The Lifesongs Village Band is a versatile group including some of Santa Fe's finest musicians. The band excels at performing a wide variety of musical styles, and they are excited to get you dancing on the Plazaǃ Expect to hear upbeat, original “Lifesongs” that have been written by writers and composers in collaboration with elders in nursing care and hospice, as well as tried and true popular music of all varieties that will get your feet moving.

Lifesongs is an arts in community project that promotes social inclusion and dignity for our elders through intergenerational creative collaboration. Lifesongs pairs facilitating artists with elders in nursing care and hospice to write original musical works which are performed in large annual community concerts by professional musicians, students of all ages, and the elders themselves. Lifesongs was founded in 2007 by the Santa Fe Opera, Littleglobe, and the Santa Fe Care Center under the leadership of Acushla Bastible, Andrea Fellows Walters, Molly Sturges, and Christine Sandoval. In 2011, Lifesongs became a program of the Academy for the Love of Learning in partnership with Littleglobe. Other partners and collaborators include Ambercare Hospice, the Santa Fe Waldorf School, Kingston Residence of Santa Fe, the University of New Mexico Dolce Suono Choir, and the 7th Wave Community Choir. Polyphony ("po-li-fa-nee") has played over 250 shows around North America and has sold over 4,000 copies of its two albums of original and roots music. With a mailing list of over 1,200 fans and nearly 650 followers on facebook, the band has a truly global reach. Completely self-operated, Polyphony has established a circuit of gigs, particularly in the Eastern US, out of sheer determination. Originally more than half the gigs were busking on the street. Play this music near any populated area, as they have done in Washington DC, New York City, Chicago, Boston and Asheville, North Carolina, and a crowd instantly gathers, gratefully applauding and buying CDs. The music is beautiful and positively joyful, and attracts listeners like a magnet. While Polyphony Marimba still does a fair amount of busking, their upcoming 2015 tour features many theaters, festivals, and concert series. visit our website
