Some great music coming our way at the Small World Centre, beginning Friday with the New York-based Bulgarian Voices Trio. The women weave together traditional Bulgarian village styles with artfully arranged a cappella songs and reveal the disarming power and intimacy of the unaccompanied voice. Should be lovely.
Speaking of voices, one of the greatest comes to town next week, as our good friend Mariza returns for a night of impeccable fado at Roy Thomson Hall. Renowned for her exquisite singing and compelling performance style, it’s always a memorable evening with this great artist. For our newsletter readers, we’ve got a pair of FREE tickets to this show. The first respondent to firstname.lastname@example.org who correctly names an artist with whom Mariza has collaborated, gets the tickets and a limited edition DVD! Hint – the answer is on our website!
Coming up too is our presentation of Oliver Mtukudzi’s band at the Opera House on November 11th. Always a massive party, we’re looking forward to seeing him here. When it comes to Zimbabwean music, we have our own local heroes – Nhapitapi did a great set at our festival and Tich Maredza will be doing a CD launch show at the Burdock on Saturday.
The in/future festival seems a long time ago now, but there’s a nice leftover to mention. Our sponsors at Exodus Travels have named the winner of a pair of tickets to fly to any designation of their choosing. Congratulations to John Rudyk!
