Casa Limn Hosts a Week of Music in NYC

16/11/2018

For the second year, Berklee musicians and the Mediterranean Music Institute joined forces with Casa Lim n, a record label and production company owned and directed by Berklee faculty member Javier Lim n, to host seven days of musical events in New York City.

The week included a panel discussion on modern Mediterranean music and a tribute to Cuban pianist Bebo Valdes featuring three young female pianists. The label also hosted a New York-themed songwriting contest for students, which garnered entries of various styles inspired by the city. Berklee student Martin Guas, the contest winner, earned the chance to have his original song recorded by Lim n. The Casa Lim n Gala, supported by the Spanish consulate, featured new musical projects with a host of Berklee student and alumni musicians.

Venezuelan vocalist Nella Rojas B.M. 15 performed a selection of songs composed by Lim n for the upcoming film Everybody Knows. The film, directed and produced by Asghar Farhadi, includes Pen lope Cruz, Javier Bardem, and Ricardo Dar n. Rojas has a cameo in the film, and performed several of the songs with Lim n and a live band.
