Nani Vazana

Tuesday, November 14

Based in Amsterdam, Netherlands, Nani Vazana is one of the few artists in the world that composes new songs in the endangered Ladino language. In her 4th album, "Ke Haber" ("What's New"), she captures the spirit of the ancient, matriarchal language & culture - the fiery sound of Spanish guitars blends seamlessly with her powerful vast vocals & her lyrical trombone and piano playing. De Volkskrant named it: "A Must-See Show"!

Huu Baac Quintet

Saturday, March 9

East meets West in an intriguing musical dialogue weaving contemporary jazz performance with the sounds and musical traditions of Peru, China and Vietnam. Those in search of the unexpected need look no further than this Asian-influenced jazz ensemble featuring compositions inspired by leader Huu Bac Quach’s travels in Asia, Europe and South America. The combination is a masterful and incandescent blend of cultures.

Shane Hennessy

Thursday, March 14

Irish virtuoso guitarist Shane Hennessy has established himself as one of the leading guitarists on the world stage, known widely for his fingerstyle, flatpicking, and percussive guitar-playing approaches. His energetic live performances and his cinematically-vivid compositions tie in influences from Bach to Billie Eilish – and everything in between.
