    Thworp is a collective trio consisting of Santiago Leibson on piano, Shawn Lovato on bass, and Lesley Mok on drums. Using composition as a relational framework for improvisatory language, the group is guided by the theory of organized chaos--a process of self-assemblage that is arrived at through repetition and non-linearity. 


    Julia Patinella is a multilingual singer and songwriter currently residing in Brooklyn, NY. After years of immersion as a Flamenco singer in southern Spain, as well as a life-long dedication to the oral traditions of her ancestor's native Sicily, Julia has developed several original musical projects  in Spanish, Italian, Sicilian and English, that draws from her roots, her experience as a first-generation American female, and urgent socio-political themes. In her performances, she brings forth an expansive repertoire steeped in history and folk traditions, and a rich, guttural voice that carries the raw emotions of protest, the longing for freedom, and the uncompromising commitment to sing every note with soul. 

    Julia has studied Cante Flamenco at the Fundacion Cristina Hereen de Arte Flamenco in Seville, Spain as a recipient of the American Friends Scholarship in 2011 and 2012. She performs regularly in the U.S., Europe, and Latin America. Past collaborations as vocalist / arranger include Flamenco Nomadico, Flamenco Trio Noche Blanca, Southern Italian Folk Project with her group Quartetto Matapena, Cuban Son with Mi Le lo Lai, traditional Afro - Colombian music with Grupo Chonta, and Classical Arabic music with the New York Arabic Orchestra
