Biography



Rodríguez-Seeger is the son of Mika Seeger and Emilio Rodríguez, a Puerto Rican filmmaker. After his father was invited by the Sandinistas to document the nation's civil war, Seeger spent nine years of his childhood in Nicaragua.

In 1986, Rodríguez-Seeger started performing with his grandfather, Pete Seeger. In 1999 he was a member of the band RIG, with Sarah Lee Guthrie and Johnny Irion. In 2001, he founded The Mammals with Michael Merenda and Ruth Ungar. In 2006 he recorded an album, ¡Que vaya bien!, with Puerto Rican folk singers Roy Brown and Tito Auger of the Puerto Rican rock band Fiel a la vega and he formed the Anarchist Orchestra (now known as the Tao Rodriguez-Seeger band) with Jacob Silver, also of the Mammals, Laura Cortese and Robin McMillan.

Seeger had a radio show "The Tao of Tao" on WAMC.

Barack Obama inaugural celebration


On January 18, 2009, Seeger performed with his grandfather Pete Seeger, Bruce Springsteen and a youth chorus at the We Are One Inaugural Celebration of President Barack Obama. They sang Woody Guthrie's famous song "This Land Is Your Land" during the finale, before an audience estimated at 400,000. The performance included two of Guthrie's original verses to the song that have often been censored; one verse mentions "private property" and the other refers to a depression era relief office.

On October 21, 2011, Seeger was part of The Pete Seeger March which walked in solidarity with Occupy Wall Street to Columbus Circle. There he performed with his grandfather Pete Seeger, Arlo Guthrie, David Amram, and other musicians.

HOY DESTACAMOS
Fernando González Lucini

por Xavier Pintanel el 06/07/2020

"Federico García Lorca ha sido –y sigue siendo–, sin duda, el poeta más musicalizado y cantado de la Literatura Universal". Así de contundente se muestra el pedagogo y estudioso de la canción de autor Fernando González Lucini quien viene desarrollando desde hace años el proyecto Universo musical en la obra poética de Federico García Lorca, un trabajo donde recopila toda la poesía musicalizada y cantada —incluyendo la discografía— del poeta granadino.

HOY EN PORTADA
Hacia la «nueva normalidad»

por Carles Gracia Escarp el 12/07/2020

Vuelve a la vida la música en vivo con la condición de unos aforos reducidos y medidas extraordinarias, quién sabe hasta cuándo... pero de momento es todo cuanto tenemos, un respiro de incierto recorrido para aquellos que viven de la cultura, de la música. Disfrutamos con el directo de Marina Rossell.
