Rarely has immigrants’ connection to their past and future been so fully realized in a passionate embrace as in this premiere of Papá Cuatro at Miami New Drama. It is, by turns, alternately rousing, soulful, humorous, thrilling; but always a moving celebration of Venezuelan music refracted through the backstories of world-class exiled musicians.
The cuatro, a small quintessential Venezualan instrument four-string guitar, is the focus of Papá Cuatro, Miami New Drama’s world premiere, opens. The director describes it as “something between a musical, a documentary, and a house party.”
