FORMERS & PERFORMERS presents Generations: Mike & Aleksi Glick with Bernardo & Demian Palombo

Join us a coming together of two father and son duos - Generations: Mike & Aleksi Glick with special guests Bernardo and Demian Palombo, plus Latin percussionist Gene Golden. The night will feature a repertoire of songs from folk music legends from North and South America such as Mercedes Sosa's "Cancion con Todos" and Woody Guthrie's "Deportee", in addition to original compositions by each of the performers. 

Mike and Aleksi Glick have joined forces as "Generations", a father/son guitar and songwriting duo. Both bring unique talents to this new mix. Mike toured the USA, Europe and Asia winning fans and praise from The New York Times' Robert Palmer who wrote, "Their material has the sound and rhythms of Brazilian... and Afro-Cuban music (and) is more rousing and musically substantive than the music of city folk singers of previous generations.

Born in Mendoza, Bernardo Palombo achieved his first musical success at the age of seventeen when his song "Vendimiador" was recorded by the legendary Argentinean vocal group, Los Trovadores. He moved to New York City in 1969 and continued to write songs that have been recorded by some of the best-known exponents of Latin music in New York and Nueva Canción in South America including Mercedes Sosa, Philip Glass and Lucecita Benitez. 

Guitarist, songwriter, and teacher Demian Palombo incorporates many music influences to create an eccentric and eclectic style of music that is authentically unique. Demian studied traditional fingerstyle blues guitar with Woody Mann and fingerboard harmony with Howard Morgan at Mannes College The New School and Hunter College. He has also had the honor to work with numerous notable musicians including Dan Zanes, Quique Sinesi and Rosalia Roio. 

Formers and Performers is supported, in part, by public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs, in partnership with the City Council.
