Change announced for NELLA AND DAYME AROCENA concert at the Royal Conservatory
The Royal Conservatory of Music regrets to announce that due to travel complications from Venezuela, Nella will not be able to perform as planned this Saturday 6 November.
Award-winning Havana Afro-Cuban jazz singer Daymé Arocena, described by The New Yorker as “one of the most dynamic jazz singers in the world,” will appear as scheduled.
To replace Nella, the Royal Conservatory quickly found a replacement in collaboration with the new Canadian art presenter, FabCollab.
The first half of the evening, Women in Song by FabCollab, features four of Toronto’s most famous global voices accompanied by live dance and supported by award-winning ensemble Ventanas. Women in Song takes audiences across the globe, from the Afro-Venezuelan and Latin-jazz sounds of Eliana Cuevas to the Arab medleys of Tara Moneka, to the Brazilian post-samba fusion of Aline Morales, to the flamenco-infused global melodies of Tamar Ilana. Spectacular Aboriginal dancer Nichole Leveck in a fancy shawl and fringed dress accompanies this stellar range. This is the fifth edition of the Women in Song concert series, which features powerful female stars in music and dance, and is produced by FabCollab, a new arts organization committed to amplifying the voices of minorities. in the arts.
