Lauded vocalist Lizz Wright performs new music from her recently released album, Shadow. Wright is a steward of American music, bringing brilliant colour and vibrancy to singular original works and compositions by some of the greatest songwriters of our time. Through an inimitable voice that The New York Times touts as “a smooth, dark alto possessed of qualities you might associate with barrel-aged bourbon or butter-soft leather,” Wright sings with a soaring reflection of the cultural fabric of America.

Juno Award nominated Lebanese-Canadian drummer, composer, educator, and producer Sanah Kadoura’s music traverses the modern jazz idiom with hints of neo-soul and a strong musical influence from her motherland of Lebanon. “Kadoura is a dexterous improviser, with a light, elastic approach that evokes Tony Williams, a major influence.” (JazzTimes)
