"A House Concert & More since 1997"

Saturday Evening, December 3, 2016
Featuring

DANIEL WAPLES & DAN MULQUEEN

Daniel Waples - Hang in Balance
Daniel Waples is from London, he got his first HandPan in 2007, he supports himself as an independent musician whist spreading the gospel of the HandPan, an instrument associated with energy work and alternative healing, and one which he hopes will become a Symbol for universal peace and the Inner journeys all people take pursuing their individual Paths.

Dan Mulqueen is an American multi-instrumentalist hailing from New Jersey.
His approach to the handpan has lead to a very distinct and recognizable sound that is very much on the side of beat heavy and head bouncing rhythms.

His style comes from over 15 years as a drummer in many different genres. You can hear phrasing and rhythmic influences from each of these in his handpan music.

Dan has released 2 albums since 2013. You can listen to “Late Night Sound” and "Until I'm Ready" right now!http://www.facebook.com/DanMulqueenMusic

Mysterious Travelers 3: Internal Investigations - a collaboration between The Free Library of Philadelphia and Philadelphia Jazz Project. Back by overwhelming popular demand! FREE concerts every fourth Monday night from October 2015 through May 2016 audiences will hear from veteran, as well as up-and-coming musicians who are shaping the future sounds of Philadelphia with a sharp ear to the legacies of our past. This season will directly celebrate the massive and amazing collections of the Free Library by granting our performers access to explore them as a source of inspiration for the creation of new musical works and arrangements

Kunu Bi [pronounced KooNew - Bee] is an African/American, Folk/Roots music trio consisting of Papa Ed Stokes, Tom Lowery and Bert Harris.

Papa Ed Stokes is a multi-instrumentalist and vocalist who plays more than a dozen instruments. He is also a highly-accomplished instrument maker and a lifelong student of African Diasporic music.

He's also studied the African-inspired, American instrument, the Diddley Bow with Mississippi master, Glen Faulkner. Papa Ed’s main goal is to keep these African-influenced musical traditions alive and to pass them on.

Tom Lowery is an accomplished drummer and percussionist from Philly known for his versatility playing Latin/Brazilian hand drumming and ably manning the traditional drum kit. Bassist, Bert Harris plays reggae, ska, New Orleans funk and blues, straight-ahead Jazz and avant-garde Jazz: All inspired by the Roots music in which Kunu Bi immerses itself.

November 20, 2016 7:00-10:00PM Exuberance: Elio Villafranca/Abdou Mboup Duo

20 years ago he was a young Cuban emigre percussionist/pianist. Today, he teaches at Julliard and regularly conceives and headlines programs for Jazz at Lincoln Center and venues around the world. Much of that in-between time Elio Villafranca spent in Philly and we love him here.

Striking to me is that in every encounter with Elio I have heard entirely different concepts and tonal palletes. It’s both the depth and the breadth of his mastery of classical, jazz, national and folkloric musics which permit him to curate programs of original compositions or arrangements of extant work that have a particular synthesis and stunning coherence.

Last year Elio debuted his spellbinding "Cinqu茅-Suite of the Caribbean" at the Appel Room, connecting melodies and rhythms of Puerto Rico, Santo Domingo, Haiti, Jamaica, and Cuba to their Congolese roots with a powerful band of collaborators. Last month JALC presented the brilliant "Letters to Mother Africa," Elio’s curation of jazz works contemplating the lodestar of African identity—his own and those of Duke Ellington, Louis Armstrong, Max Roach, Eric Dolphy, Randy Weston, Charles Mingus, and Wayne Shorter. It was a profoundly persuasive program with a powerful band including Billy Harper, David Murray, Dezron Douglas and Lewis Nash.

But the highlight of the evening belonged to Senegalese percussionist Abdou Mboup, who sang and played a variety of instruments including the kora. His original composition “Nomad Land” drew a striking connection between jazz and Africa. Downbeat covered the show and Mboup’s role concluding:

Together, these musicians made it clear that the music of Africa, America and Cuba—though separated by miles of ocean—could be explored with penetrating closeness under the same moon.

As the review notes, the connection between Villafranca and Mboup is undeniable. But don’t take our word for it. Check out Elio Villafranca & Abdou Mboup Duet - From Havana to Senegal on YouTube. I think you’ll want to join us.

November 18 and 19, 2016 7:30 & 10:00 PM Vertical Current with Nina Rosen at Warmdaddy's

Vertical Current, also known as VC, was started in 2009 by trumpeter/composer Christopher Stevens, Donald C. Stevens Jr. (Bass) and Brandon Mullen (Drums). They were later joined by Ali Prawl (Keys) and Jordan Damiani (Guitar). Since forming in 2009, the band has worked with artists such as Jessica Reedy, Leah Smith, Jeff Murrell, Noel Gourdine, and Dezzie Neal. Some of the band's highlights include performing at the Lancaster Ave Jazz Fest, the Center City Jazz Fest, the Collingswood Mayfair, and opening for The Robert Glasper Experiment at World Cafe Live. In 2010, Vertical Current collaborated with local hit-maker Donald Robinson to make their debut EP "aRe". This year the band worked with young super producer, Steve Mckie, to record their first full length cd which will be entitled "Bright Side of Midnight". Over the course of the last year or so the band has grown to include vocalists Chartel Findlater and Shelia Moser. VC has also been known to have a surprise guest on occasion. For instance the band was joined by Eric Roberson at a recent show. Individually, members of this band have recorded and performed with a wide variety of artists from Earth Wind & Fire to Darryl Hall so you never know who might show up. VC's brand of music is a unique blend of genres that is intended to uplift and inspire.

The three musicians of Trio Da Kali hail from the Mande culture of Mali, from a heritage of distinguished griots, the caste of specialist hereditary musical artisans. They bring a fresh, contemporary, creative twist to their musical art, breathing new life back into this ancient tradition. Their performances offer a rare glimpse into the soul of the art of the griot, celebrating the African continent’s finest, most subtle and sublime music.
Born near Lake Victoria in Uganda, Kinobe (pronounced “CHI-NO-B脡”) began playing music as a child and by the time he was 21, he had visited every country in Africa, studying and playing with traditional musicians. Over the years as a touring musician, he has performed on numerous festivals along other African artists as such as Toumani Diabate, Youssou N’dour, Salif Keita, Angelique Kidjo, Oliver Mtukudzi, Baaba Maal and many more. His first international performance was at the age of ten with his school ensemble and since then Kinobe has been captivating audiences with virtuoso performances of Ugandan and African roots music and, original compositions, reflecting a wealth of African and world influences. A multi-instrumentalist and singer-songwriter, Kinobe’s has dedicated his life to championing for a better future for children worldwide and using his music as a voice to unite the world.

November 12, 2016 8:00-10:30PM La Yegros: Cumbia from Buenos Aires in Arden, DE

La Yegros: Arden Concert Gild
La Yegros is a powerful presence in Buenos Aires underground scene her vibrant sound and unique voice, along with a larger-than-life performance presence, gives her the point-of-view of an artist with South American flair, but a global mindset.

La Yegros resides in the pulsing heart of cosmopolitan Buenos Aires, but her family hails from the tropical climates found in the rural rain forests of the north, bordering Brazil. She received classical, conservatory training in music and got her break when she played before thousands as part of the De La Guarda experimental theatre. Her debut album Viene De Mi features a wide spectrum of genres: tropical rhythms, Argentine folk, reggae, dancehall, soul, and arabic music.

Confident and vibrant in approach, shes been championed by MTV Iggy, as well as by Fader Magazine, who hailed La Yegros raw urgency while sounding completely relaxed and conversational. Listening to her sing, theres the swagger of a Kelis or even Jamaican dancehall combined with the indomitable homespun wisdom of a vintage soul queen, such as Laura Lee or Angie Stone.

Theres a sass to her singing, at once fresh and urgent yet aged in experience and attitude, that cuts through the male-dominated contemporary cumbia, drawing on both deep folk traditions and cutting edge beats.
