This weekend at the Small World Centre, we’re pleased to welcome Anton Apostolov and his Green Sky Project for an evening of Balkan-jazz played by some of the city’s finest. The event is sold out, so watch for forthcoming concert videos to get a taste for next time.
Having just returned from WOMEX in Budapest, it seems fitting that one of the greatest musical exports from Hungary is appearing in town tomorrow (Thursday) presented by our friends at Ashkanaz. For over 40 years, Muzsikás have been the leading emissaries of Hungarian folk. They pioneered a roots revival that grew into a wide movement celebrating the nation’s rich musical culture. I was lucky enough to see them in an intimate performance as they received the WOMEX Award in 2008. Truly a special band!
If you can’t get seats for that, the same evening at the Centre, you can experience some superb Mexican guitar playing at the Small World Centre, as Eloy Zúñiga Guinea performs. Blurring the distinctions between classical guitar, Mexican folk, introspective songwriting, and jazz, next Friday, will mark his first solo guitar concert outside of Mexico.
