Patricia Vonne Wins "Best Animation"

Patricia Vonne is back from Madrid with the Best Animation award for “Huerta de San Vicente,” a music video and homage to Spanish poet Federico García Lorca. The Texas native, musician, actress & two time SXSW best female vocalist winner adds another award to her growing accolades. The video, from the song featured on Vonne’s album Firebird and her Spanish compilation album Viva Bandolera, is no stranger to awards. It was the “Grand Prize” winner in the Latin category for the John Lennon Songwriting contest in 2009. Vonne celebrates the win with two upcoming July shows in San Antonio and Austin. Details below.

Vonne enthusiastically states about the win, “I feel deeply grateful and honored to be recognized with this prestigious award from my ancestral country of Spain for paying homage to the dynamic spirit of Federico García Lorca & all that he represents through his life & his works.” “Huerta de San Vicente” premiered at Cine Las Americas International Film Festival and will screen from August 1–6 in her hometown for the San Antonio Film Festival.

The stunning stop motion animation was inspired by her visit to Huerta de San Vicente in Granada, Spain where Lorca wrote many of his works.  Considered one of the most influential Spanish poets of the 20th century, García Lorca died tragically during the Spanish Civil War, but his spirit lives on through his art, with energy and spirit as palpable as Vonne’s own works.

Vonne has just returned from a 37 date European Tour and is now in the studio recording her seventh studio album with producers Rick Del Castillo and Michael Ramos featuring co-writes with Alejandro Escovedo, Joe King Carrasco & Willie Nile, among others.
