NEW YORK CITY -
From the gathering of New York’s many West African bards on a single stage, to the magical performance of sung Persian poetry, and the fresh and contemplative jaw harp of Wang Li, Live@365 is bringing both contemporary and traditional artists to New York audiences.

Live@365 is a new world music series curated by Isabel Soffer and produced by the CUNY Graduate Center. Bringing diverse and compelling artists to the Elebash Recital Hall gives audience members a chance to experience these performers in an intimate yet acoustically superior venue.

Celebrating its second season, Live@365's first performance this year presents Emeline Michel from Haiti (pictured), Martha Redbone from NYC, and Vlada Tomova from Bulgaria—three artists who are crossing boundaries of traditional and contemporary music. Vlada Tomova, a “vocal sorceress,” creates haunting, otherworldly sounds with influences from Bulgaria and the Balkans, the Middle East, India, and Sephardic Spain, recalling Bulgaria’s cultural origins shaped by ancient migrations.

Internationally renowned singer, songwriter, producer, and dancer Emeline Michel, the "Joni Mitchell of Haiti,” merges Haitian compas and rara with jazz, pop, bossa nova, and samba. Martha Redbone, of Shawnee, Choctaw, and African American descent, performs music that flows equally from Native American elements, soul, R&B, funk, and her deep roots in Appalachian folk and Piedmont blues.
