Orbiting Around The Lula World

Today is the beginning of one of Toronto`s great annual sound smorgasboards: Lulaworld at Lula Lounge

Two of the most exciting acts on the schedule are visiting the Orbit this Friday.  

With the release of her new disk Animaaward-winning Valeria Matzner presents her rich voice in a world-jazz fusion setting. In tunes co-written with her masterful pianist Scott Metcalfe, and inspired by her upbringing in Uruguay, she sets her spirit aloft and free. At 5:15 we will have a chance to sample some tracks ahead of her showcase next Wednesday at 7 p.m.

Then, at 6 p.m., profound manifester of  complex mandolin compositions and co-founder of The Creaking Tree String Quartet and The Foggy Hogtown Boys, Andrew Collins beams in to preview Tongue & Groove, a new disk by his trio, featuring Mike Mezzatesta and James McEleney. They construct brave combinations of bluegrass, folk, jazz, classical and swing. They are at Lula on Sunday, June 10th.
