      ETHEL and Robert Mirabal

      ETHEL was established in New York City in 1998, quickly earning a reputation as one of America's most adventurous string quartets—heirs to the likes of the Kronos Quartet and Soldier String Quartet, and part of a generation of young artists blending uptown, conservatory musicianship with downtown genre-crossing—by playing with the intensity and accoutrements of a rock band. The New York Times has described them as "indefatigable and eclectic." ETHEL is: Ralph Farris (viola), Kip Jones (violin), Dorothy Lawson (cello) and Corin Lee (violin). A collaborative ethos is the heart of ETHEL—a quest for a common creative expression forged in the celebration of community. Robert Mirabal joins them in collaboration. He id a Pueblo musician and world-renowned Native American flute player and maker from Taos Pueblo, New Mexico. An award-winning musician and leading proponent of work music, Mirabal performs worldwide, sharing flute songs, tribal rock, dance, and storytelling. He was twice named the Native American Music Award's Artist of the Year, and received the Songwriter of the Year award three times. He is also a father and a farmer, living in Taos Pueblo and participating in the traditional ways and rituals of his people.
