This unique evening will feature Las Brujas del Barrio and Rakkatak.
Las Brujas del Barrio sing the songs of their abuelos (i.e. Chavela Vargas, Mercedes Sosa, Violeta Parra, Lila Downs, Isabel Parra, Lola Beltran). Rakkatak merges classical Indian rhythms and melodies with a pop music aesthetic.
Rakkatak merges rhythms and melodies influenced by classical Indian music with a pop music aesthetic. Rakkatak is Anita Katakkar‘s solo project, initiated out of her need to highlight and share the subtle beauty of tabla in a non-traditional way. Having lived in multicultural Toronto all her life, Anita’s diverse taste in music ranging from folk to rock to electronica is reflected in her work. She created her first self-titled album in studio and from there paired with bassist Oriana Barbato to co-produce Rakkatak’s EP Open and now, Small Pieces.
