After carrying out a pilgrimage of free experimentation between jazz and pop music, Sonia is revealing herself between shadow and light with Chrysalis, her first album in English launched last november is acclaimed by the critics around the world. From the slumber of the caterpillar to the flight of the butterfly, she’s deploying multi-colored wings on this audacious musical road trip. Poetic and soulful, definitely slowly woven with long silk yarn!
Award-winning jazz singer-songwriter Ori Dagan is taking jazz to new and exciting places. His rich baritone voice and impressive abilities as an improviser produce an instantly recognizable sound. In live performance, he surrounds himself with Canada’s finest musicians, performing a fresh mix of material which is always in the moment. Dagan’s 2017 recording “Nathaniel: A Tribute to Nat King Cole” was the first visual album in jazz history, netting him an official showcase at South-By-South-West in Austin, Texas, a headline spot at the TanJazz Festival in Tangier, Morocco, and performances at the first Public Diplomacy Week in Seoul, South Korea.
