Lia Uribe will create a recording of music for bassoon by marginalized minorities from Latin America and the United States, presenting her personal experiences and processes of working hand-in-hand with composers and creating a window for interaction and an opportunity for representation. The music included in the recording will be by Katherine Murdock, Niloufar Iravani, Fernado Fernandez, Leonardo Mendoza and Alessandra Vargas.
