Don't miss this joyous night of global sounds and Yiddish roots - for the first time, with on-stage motion graphics by Lumir Hladik.

"EMBRACE U.S.A." tour: November 2015

THANK YOU to all the fans that came to hear us on our Embrace USA tour! Due to massive backlogs in P2 work visa processing, we missed the first concert of our tour at The Cedar in Minneapolis. We are very sorry about that, and hope to come back to that city some other time! Luckily, we made all the rest of our tour dates. We brought our serene Songs for the Breathing Walls to Cedar Rapids, Iowa, and served up our global musical cuisine to enthusiastic crowds from there on, in New York, Chicago, Berkeley, Seattle, L.A., and Burlington, Iowa. We thank you, we love you all, and we are already looking forward to the next time! Visit this space to find some fun footage from some of the concerts, in a week or two. And not to forget: this tour was made possible through the generous support of Canada Council for the Arts Touring Program.
