Description

*English below*

Manhattan Neighborhood Network (MNN) & the Columbia University Irving Medical Center’s Office of Government & Community Affairs les invita cordialmente a celebrar la trayectoria y legado artístico del maestro Rafael Solano en la música dominicana con la proyección del documental SOLANO, dirigido por Patricia Solano y Juan Basanta.

Habrá un conversatorio con los cineastas y el maestro Solano en persona al final de la película.

SOLANO es un documental basado en una entrevista que le hace al célebre compositor su hija, la periodista Patricia Solano. En esa entrevista Rafael Solano cuenta su vida a partir de su pueblo natal, Puerto Plata, donde fue conocido en los años 40 como “niño prodigio” por su dedicación al piano.

El documental es un recuento de la evolución de la música dominicana en los últimos 60 años a través de la exitosa trayectoria de este compositor que descubrió y apadrinó gran parte de los artistas que surgieron con la inauguración de “Rahintel” en 1959. Gran parte de ese célebre grupo le acompaña en una fiesta de amigos que discurre de manera paralela junto a las entrevistas, y en las que cantan de manera improvisada canciones que marcaron sus exitosas carreras.

En una amena conversación Solano narra su traslado a la capital a seguir sus estudios de música en el conservatorio y su salto al mundo artístico a través de la entonces “Voz Dominicana” de los años 50.

El maestro Solano es uno de los mas laureados tanto en el país como en el extranjero debido a sus canciones, en especial una de ellas: “Por Amor", difundida a nivel mundial gracias a la cantidad de cantantes locales y extranjeros que la han grabado.

El documental cuenta con los testimonios y actuaciones de Niní Cáffaro, Fernando Casado, Luchy Vicioso (EPD), Arístides Inchautegui (EPD), Guillo Carías, Huchi Lora, Fernando Villalona, Minin Soto, Nobel Alfonso, Marel Alemany, José del Castillo, Pedro Delgado Malagón, Dioni Fernández, Blanca Delgado, Armando Beltré, Horacio Pichardo, Adalgisa Pantaleón, Janio Lora, Julio César Defilló, Nandy Rivas, Expedi Pou.

*********

Manhattan Neighborhood Network (MNN) & the Columbia University Irving Medical Center’s Office of Government & Community Affairs cordially invites you to celebrate the career and artistic legacy of maestro Rafael Solano in Dominican music with the screening of the documentary SOLANO, directed by Patricia Solano and Juan Basanta.

The screening will follow a Q&A with the filmmakers and maestro Solano in person.

SOLANO is a documentary based on an interview with the famous composer, his daughter, journalist Patricia Solano. In that interview, Rafael Solano tells his life from his hometown, Puerto Plata, where he was known in the 40s as "child prodigy" for his dedication to the piano.

The documentary is an account of the evolution of Dominican music in the last 60 years through the successful career of this composer who discovered and sponsored many of the artists that emerged with the inauguration of "Rahintel" in 1959. Much of that famous group accompanies him in a party of friends that runs in parallel with the interviews, and in which improvised songs sing songs that marked his successful careers.

In a pleasant conversation, Solano recounts his transfer to the capital to continue his music studies at the conservatory and his leap into the artistic world through the then "Dominican Voice" of the 50s.

Solano is one of the most successful both in the country and abroad because of his songs, especially one of them: "Por Amor", spread worldwide thanks to the number of local and foreign singers who have recorded it.

The documentary features the testimonials and performances of Niní Cáffaro, Fernando Casado, Luchy Vicioso (EPD), Arístides Inchautegui (EPD), Guillo Carías, Huchi Lora, Fernando Villalona, Minin Soto, Nobel Alfonso, Marel Alemany, José del Castillo, Pedro Delgado Malagón, Dioni Fernández, Blanca Delgado, Armando Beltré, Horacio Pichardo, Adalgisa Pantaleón, Janio Lora, Julio César Defilló, Nandy Rivas, Expedi Pou.
