Join us for a performance celebrating new albums from two local groups, acclaimed for their cross-cultural musical explorations — Kamancello and Tamar Ilana & Ventanas.


Kamancello, an East-meets-West duo whose improvised performances transcend genres and cultural boundaries, present their second full-length record — Kamancello II: Voyage. Comprised of Shahriyar Jamshidi and Raphael Weinroth-Browne, the duo’s evocative fusion of the Kurdish kamanche and classical cello has made waves across the country and in Europe.


Tamar Ilana & Ventanas present a multimedia show marking the release of their third album, MISTRĀL. Named for the wind that traverses the Mediterranean, the title alludes to the migrations of the Sephardic and Romani people over the centuries. A four-time nominee for the Canadian Folk Music Awards, Ventanas reimagines Mediterranean melodies and flamenco grooves with “potent, vibrato-drenched vocals” (Downbeat) and “bristling oud solos” (New York Music Daily).
