AGNES OBEL (From Denmark)

Pure, austere, and remarkably poised, Agnes Obel infuses her exquisite, atmospheric songs with a deep and resonant melancholy. Her double-platinum debut Philharmonics was an unexpected hit in her native Denmark (as well as in France, Belgium and her adopted home of Germany).

Now she comes to Boston for the first time with Aventine, a languid and reflective sophomore recording. Obel's sweet velvety voice and pristine mix of piano, violin and cello are captivating.

Medici Musica Productions Presents: ALI AMR

It is the early 1990's, in a small town in Morocco where a very young boy walks into a music theater listening to the voice of his mother singing. His heart and mind are full of warmth, and he knows in that moment, he too, wants to be on the stage. With growing inspiration, he returns home to create his own performance adding all he can find to use as instruments. Ali Amr is a singer and Qanun performer. The development of his artistic style is the result of a journey of musical influences.
