All-women mariachi group and Latin Grammy nominees Mariachi Flor de Toloache is lead by singers Mireya I. Ramos (founder) and Shae Fiol (original member). Reminiscent of the early days of mariachi, the group started as a trio of harp, violin and vihuela; today, Mariachi Flor De Toloache performs as a full mariachi ensemble. The members hail from diverse cultural backgrounds such as Mexico, Puerto Rico, Dominican Republic, Cuba, Australia, Colombia, Germany, Italy and the United States. This diversity defines its unique flavor and sound. The result of this cultural bouquet is an edgy, versatile and fresh take on traditional Mexican music. Opening both shows will be Edna Vazquez, a Latin American artist based in the Northwest who performs original music that pays homage to her many influences from across the Americas. Edna has traveled far and wide to share their message of light, love and cultural healing.

He has brought his emotionally-charged performances to concert halls, museums, music venues and performance spaces throughout the US, Mexico and Europe, with a voice that channels the skill and ferocity of such auteurs as Scott Walker, Nina Simone and Tom Waits.

THAT'S NOT TANGO: ASTOR PIAZZOLLA, A LIFE IN MUSIC
Saturday, August 5 at 7PM / Sunday, August 6 at 7PM - $30
You've heard his music -- now meet the man. On the 25th anniversary of his death, That's Not Tango explores Astor Piazzolla's complicated personal relationships and far-reaching musical legacy. In words and live music, Piazzolla's imaginary and restless spirit takes us from his birthplace in Argentina through a childhood as a would-be hoodlum on the mean streets of New York's Lower East Side. We travel with him as a young man back to Argentina where he becomes a professional bandoneon player, band leader, and ultimately, composer, studying with the legendary teacher, Nadia Boulanger. This is the story of a kid who detested the scratchy tango records his father insisted on playing every night, to someone who grew up to become the savior of tango and, along the way, a towering figure in 20th century music. Conceived and written by Lesley Karsten (with co-writer Stephen Wadsworth), the show features Karsten as Piazzolla with pianist Brandt Fredriksen, bandoneon player J.P. Jofre, and violinist Nick Danielson.

ALINE MUNIZ
Thursday, August 10 at 9:30PM - $15

From a media release: New Release from Little Known Government of TriBeCaStan : Capital New Deli Found to Have Irregular Time-Space Continuum EverGreene Music - February 7, 2012 TriBeCaStan: News Alert. This morning Aljazzeera reported that the questionable nation of TriBeCaStan ( www.tribecastan.tv ) has made scientific breakthroughs in time travel. The unrecognized republic of nomads has broken the code of the time/space continuum. And by broken we mean: it no longer works. Applying sonic techniques once only known to a small group of punk rock shamans, the nation's most prestigious scientific entity, the TriBeCaStani FolkLorkEstra, uses sound alone to simultaneously place listeners in eras separated by decades and terrains separated by oceans. The breakthrough is outlined in an auditory compendium titled New Deli (distributed by the state-run EverGreene Music, set for release February 7, 2012 ), a recording that allows the world to experience a type of soulful networking mor

Jazzy Pop: Shihori - Soul Trip (Independent / 4 September 2020)

Jazzy Pop: Shihori - Soul Trip (Independent / 4 September 2020) New York City based singer and songwriter Shihori's new single Soul Trip is atmospheric and ambient. Interesting rhythms and interwoven melodic vocal lines showcase jazzy harmonic progressions in a slow groove mode.  As a songwriter, she uses electronic effects with impeccable musical taste.

A veteran of the Japanese pop scene, Shihori moved to New York City in 2018, a move she talks about in a media release. "I was so surprised when I came to NY for the first time.

I didn't know there is a place like this totally different world that allows you to be yourself. Everybody looks so different. So many races, colors, cultures, fashion, ideas...I am so
