Kamancello, comprised of Shahriyar Jamshidi, kamanche and Raphael Weinroth-Browne, cello, is an East-meets-West duo that blurs musical genre conventions and cultural boundaries with their highly evocative improvised performances. The scope of their creations ranges from soulful and emotive to incendiary and intense, and their sound has been described as being “totally entrancing.” Having made waves with performances at Montreal’s Place des Arts for Festival du Monde Arabe and Toronto’s Tirgan Festival at Harbourfront Centre, Kamancello is poised to release their groundbreaking debut full-length album this fall.
Vocalist and multi-disciplinary artist, Heather Sita Black has received international acclaim for her haunting, otherworldly vocals, versatility and powerful, moving performances. Heather’s new solo project is rooted in improvisation and employs the use of loops and effects, resulting in transcendental performances that evoke ethereal sonic landscapes.
