I am proud to invite you to view my new music video. I am performing “Cantiga del Merolico II” by Ricardo Zohn Muldoon, with Darren Stevenson of PUSH Physical Theater.
Cantiga del Merolico II (1990/rev. 2014)
composed by Ricardo Zohn-Muldoon
This work is a tribute to the merolico, an exhuberant type of vendor that is often found in open markets in México. In order to attract customers, the merolico improvises florid and incessant monologues extolling the virtues of his merchandise, while ingenuously interspersing swift compliments to beautiful señoritas passing by and satirical remarks against those who ignore him. The merolico is able to adapt to his audience with a speed and accuracy that would make a chameleon die of shame.
