Taped live as part of the third night of the 2021 Relevant Tones Festival, this is the album release party for Carla Kihlstedt and Rafael Oses’ stunning collaborative project Necessary Monsters. 

Necessary Monsters is a collaboration between composer/musician Carla  Kihlstedt and poet Rafael Osés. It is a contemporary song cycle based on  Argentine writer Jorge Luis Borges’ Book of Imaginary Beings — a  collection of fantastical creatures culled from literary and  mythological traditions around the world.
