Mariza and Massey Hall are such a perfect fit. The intimacy of the grand old space makes even an audience of 2500 feel like they’re sharing something deeply personal with the great singer. Of course her exquisitely inviting performance style has lots to do with that. Suffice to say, we’re delighted to be welcoming back the great fado star to town tomorrow evening. If tickets are still available for the show, you can find them here.
The following evening, Friday, Chris McKhool‘s Sultans of String take the stage at Trinity St. Paul‘s for a border-blurring exercise in virtuosic playing. Joined by sitarist Anwar Khurshid, the group opens up all kinds of intriguing possibilities. This has become an ongoing collaboration and with that many great players working together, it’s no surprise!
Next week, Anton Apostolov and his Green Sky Project play the Small World Centre – superb guitar playing and accompanying musicians make this a promising event. Coming the following week on the 13th it’s, the return of the legendary Youssou N’Dour. A world music pioneer, it will be a truly special night at Koerner Hall.
