Caminemos Con Maria
Behind the Music
Caminemos con María is an invitation to our communities, to celebrate Latinas, their gifts, and their stories of struggle, liberation, and resurrection, as captured in the traditional genre of Canción Latinoamericana, (Latin American Song). Each song has the name of María, and tell the story of women from different contexts, women of unbreakable faith, who draw strength from their "weaknesses", to face the struggles of life, to bring about hope and liberation for themselves, and the families who depend on them.
Yuri Rodriguez, sings these stories, and makes the connection between the name "María", the socio-cultural expectations that weigh on the shoulders of Latinas and Marías all over the world, and the biblical stories of Marías in our faith tradition.
Rodríguez is accompanied by the Worship with Bravery ensemble, an emsemble of virtuso musicians (faculty and alumni) of the prestigious Jacobs School of Music, at Indiana University. They are the musicians leading the Latin American Choir at Christ Church Cathedral, Indianapolis, a choir conducted by Yuri Rodriguez from 2013 until 2020.
