. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .. . . . . . . where ImagInatIon comes to play

Sunday, 30 January 2011

         Having been part of a gathered group of some fifty Winnipegers in a small venue on a cold winter night much like this one five years ago, I knew that I witnessing an artist who defied the rules and conventions of what one is told to do with a Cello. And the language of her songs, indeed sometimes French (she is Québecoise) often sounded like one of her own creation also, one that she felt perfectly comfortable with. Jorane is a true gift to the senses and the ImagInatIon, and I`d like to share her with you.

Here is just a small taste of the music Jorane creates & performs, this one with B. McFerrin on harmony . . . enJoy!

inspiring, yes ... I imagined you, imagining you, as artists (like you) should do ... thank you

it's so important to be the best 'you', and it's so important to share and jam and enjoy each other as artists, as these two do:-)
and this piece reminds me of the Fun i used to have harmonizing in the past(often also in a language of my own~)...
