Canción de La Magdalena (Song of The Magdalene) is a collaboration between singer-songwriter and sociologist Raquel Z. Rivera and artist Tanya Torres. The project explores the biblical/mythical figure of Mary Magdalene, providing multiple alternatives to her most common portrayal as a redeemed prostitute. Canción de La Magdalena consists of a CD of songs titled Las 7 Salves de La Magdalena (7 Songs of Praise for The Magdalene) composed by Rivera and based on Dominican, Puerto Rican and other Caribbean musical traditions, and a series of paintings by Torres exploring the art and philosophy that Mary Magdalene has inspired throughout the centuries. Canción de La Magdalena proposes Mary Magdalene as a historical and mythical character who can serve as a starting point for dialogues about women’s leadership, artistic creation, religious and musical traditions, feminism and social change. Project Launch:
September 10, 2010, 7:00 pm
St. Mark’s Church-in-the-Bowery (2nd Ave. and 10th St.)
The event will feature live music by Raquel Z. Rivera & Ojos de Sofia
and an art exhibit by Tanya Torres.

No cover charge.
