When I’m asked about the best concert I’ve ever attended, you’d be suprised how quick the answer comes out: Kahil El’Zabar. The Chicagoan musician just introduced the Elevation Project, an effort to build a community of interdisciplinary artists in the region of Aquitaine.
I’m looking forward to see the outcome of this when it’s presented at the end of 2013. For more about this, check Ethnic Heritage Ensemble’s Facebook page for updates.
Don’t have much to share this week, but still a couple of things you should know of.
When I’m asked for my favourite concert, I will answer Kahil El Zabar without hesitation. I accidently came across this trailer for the documentary Be Known, which is currently in post-production. Looking much forward to this one!
