A pop star of the gaita (Spanish bagpipes) in her native Spain and dubbed by The Wall Street Journal as “one of the living masters of the gaita,” Pato’s musical influences of jazz and Latin sounds represent a portion of her commitment to cultural exchange. Also a prolific pianist and composer, she is a core member of the Silk Road Ensemble. Pato says, “It is so easy to see how we are all connected and speak the same language when it comes to the music. The energy builds during a performance, and I value the energy that flows between me, the audience, and the other players. That is a moment of pure magic.”

This performance is made possible through the generous support of the Mid-Atlantic Arts Foundation. Washington Performing Arts performances at Sixth & I are made possible by the Abramson Family Foundation and by an anonymous gift in appreciation of Douglas Wheeler’s continuing efforts on behalf of Washington Performing Arts.
