Weekend Sounds and Scenes

Apr 20, 2016

A great weekend of music from two of our presenting associates brings remarkable sounds and images to stage. On, Saturday at Koerner Hall, Los Lobos, the legendary ‘wolves’ of Latin music present their ‘Disconnected’ show. The concert is sold out, but there are generally a handful of rush seats available the evening of the show.

The same evening, another sold out event uptown has Ukraine’s DakhaBrakha performing at the Aga Khan Museum. The following day, on Sunday afternoon, you can still get tickets for a special presentation with the band, doing a live film soundtrack. ‘Earth’, Aleksandr Dovzhenko’s 1930 silent film, has long been recognized – alongside Battleship Potemkin by Sergei Eisenstein – as one of the great Soviet-era films. This Toronto premiere combines its power with a score performed live by DakhaBrakha.

Our Asian Music Series resumes next week, with some great music on tap. More to come soon!
