We're back baby! Over the next month we will be performing a number of shows across Ontario with our great friend Flavia Nascimento, including performances at the Huntsville Festival of the Arts and the National Arts Centre in Ottawa. Check the Shows page for details.
Check out our latest online show, featuring Flavia Nascimento, recorded last summer as part of Lula World and Uma Nota's "Live in the Park series." This show was supposed to happen in High Park but our shoot day got rained out, so instead we recorded this show in the barn at Bela Farm in Hillsburgh, ON. Click HERE or the image below to watch it now on YouTube.
It's been a long year+ in the pandemic wilderness, but as live music slowly returns we are thrilled to be back at it. Over the last couple months we have performed a few shows under the constantly-evolving circumstances, including some pre-records for future livestreaming (with the amazing Flavia Nascimento), as well as backyard house concerts and outdoor club shows at Toronto venues like Drom Taberna and Juice Bar. This month we return to indoor performances for the first time in nearly two years, with a show on October 28 at our favourite local venue Drom Taberna. And as fall moves to winter we will be putting the finishing touches on our long-delayed second album, with hopes of a springtime release. Follow our Facebook and Instagram pages for all the latest info, and we hope to see you all soon.
Check out our new livestream concert for Harbourfornt Centre's "Summer Music in the Garden" Series, premiering Aug 23, featuring special guest vocalist, the amazing Flavia Nascimento. https://harbourfront.live/event/tio-chorinho/
