After a sold out concert at the historic Pallas theater in Athens, composer/performer Pericles Kanaris and his band Synolon return to New York’s Zinc Bar to continue a series of performances of Greek music with an “unplugged” approach. In using only acoustic instruments, this approach takes the listener back to the basics of the song, creating an intimate music setting that heightens audience participation. The repertoire is a mix of Kanaris originals and Greek classics arranged by the composer, blending his influences of contemporary Greek, American and orchestral music that have shaped his sound over the years.

Xiomara Laugart and her Band

Thursday, November 30
Sets at 10pm & Midnight

 

Xiomara is both the essence of the Cuba of old, with its rhythmic folk songs, fused with a blend of today’s directness and clarity of voice, which is eventually matched with her deep laugh. It is that distinctive laugh that will soon captivate American audiences from all walks of life with her swing style in all of her Cuban splendor.

 

In 2007, Xiomara left Yerba Buena and embarked on an adventure that held the enormous responsibility of representing one of the most important figures in Latin culture, Celia Cruz, the Queen of Latin Music, in the first ever theatre production based on the legendary late Cuban artist. CELIA: The Life & Music of Celia Cruz, raised its curtain on September 26, 2007 at New World Stages on Broadway, with a massive critical acclaim, highlighting the amazing portrayal and incomparable voice of Xiomara Laugart.

 

"Xiomara’s seductive style left its indelible mark on Cuba for a decade, leaving behind scores of fans in her wake.”“Xiomara, “la negra” (the black girl) as this young singer is affectionately called by her legion of followers, manages to sing every style from her homeland with ease, from bolero to salsa to danzon to guaracha to funky dance tunes.”
