Susie Ibarra is a composer, performer, percussionist, and co- founder of Song of the Bird King, a production company using music and film to preserve indigenous culture and ecology. Born in Anaheim, CA in 1970, she tours and performs internationally in numerous festivals and concert series and is known for creating cultural dialogues through her music. As a composer, Ms. Ibarra incorporates diverse styles and influences of Philippine Kulintang, jazz, classical, poetry, musical theater, opera and electronics into her music and is interested and involved in works that blend folkloric and indigenous traditions with avant-garde. She regularly collaborates with such noted artists as composer/percussionist Roberto Rodriguez in Mundo Niños and as part of the Electric Kulintang; with soloists Bridget Kibbey, Jennifer Choi and Kathleen Supove in the Susie Ibarra Quartet, as well as with Pulitzer Prize-winning poet Yusef Komunyakaa and visual artist Makoto Fujimura in various interdisciplinary art collaborations. Ms. Ibarra is a TED Fellow, and among her current projects is the 2012 premiere of Saturnalia, a performance/new music theatre work with text by Mr. Komunyakaa, directed by Daniel Fish produced by Music Theatre Group in New York.
