    The Second DGT of the Year Brings Artist Xiomara Fortuna to the City of New York
    New York, April 2, 2015

    The second Dominican Get-Together (DGT) of this year brings to the city of New York Dominican multifaceted artist Xiomara Fortuna. She is a singer, songwriter, composer and researcher of Dominican culture, with over 38 years of musical career. In this complimentary event, which will take place on April 17, the audience will have the opportunity to talk with Xiomara about her career and her life. In this live concert Xiomara will perform some of her most famous songs.

    Since 1981, Xiomara has devoted herself to the research of Dominican traditions, undertaking a risk by distancing herself from what is strictly commercial to work on an original musical proposal based on the uniqueness of the original Dominican rhythms, which has earned her international recognition.

    As she explains in her biography, her professional career is a commitment to spiritual elevation and to bring the core of what is Dominican to the highest standards of excellence. She is recognized as an independent artist who has managed to remain faithful to her ideas in her poetry, giving voice to the popular demand for social justice and to the feelings of the most disadvantaged, creating a product of subtle and unusual beauty.

    She has been awarded UNESCO’s Gandhi Medal for her contribution to peace and tolerance, and the National University of Colombia recognized her for including the gender perspective in her work. She was declared a national treasure at the International Living Art Festival. Fortuna presides over the Culture and Development Initiatives Foundation, which manages the El Campeche Ecological Ranch project and, in this context, organizes a music festival that sings to life and in favor of the Verde Limón natural resources.

    About DGT
