Brass / Keys / Pride and Giveaway!

Jun 29, 2016

Tonight, the TD Toronto Jazz Festival presents Devil’s Tale featuring Adrian Raso and Fanfare Ciocarlia with Lemon Bucket Orkestra. We have a pair of tickets for our newsletter readers! The first responder to adam@smallworldmusic.com gets to party!

Fanfare’s eastern funk groove has torn up halls and festivals across the planet, delivering the wildest parties, the phattest Balkan beats and the deepest Gypsy soul. This should be quite a night! Check out the video from their appearance at our festival a few years ago.

The jazz continues on the weekend with Cuban pianist Alfredo Rodriguez, described by the legendary Quincy Jones as ‘one of the most prolific and gifted jazz pianists of the 21st century’, with a sound that cross pollinates his Cuban tradition with the cultures he has experienced throughout his musical journeys.

Also on Saturday as part of Pride celebrations, Middle Eastern culture is showcased with a headliner we presented a while back. Mashrou’ Leila is among the most compelling and provocative bands in the Arabic world, earning international praise for their unparalleled sound, unflinching sociopolitical convictions, and searing live performances.

More tidbits on the in/future front. A good reason to take advantage Single Day Any Day passes for in/future – on Chilean Independence Day, September 18th, the festival will present one of that country’s premier musical exports as Nano Stern and his group perform. A great celebration is anticipated.

Speaking of celebrating, happy Canada Day weekend!
