DoVira is set to release their debut full-length album, self-titled as ‘DoVira’ on November 25th, 2016 at the Burdock Music Hall in Toronto.

Zephyr is a collaborative musical trio featuring Brenna MacCrimmon (vocals, tambura, ukelele), Demetrios Petsalakis (oud, baglama, lyra, riqq) and Jaash Singh (percussion). Together they explore original composition, and traditional arrangements featuring various folk styles from Turkey, Greece and the Balkans. Come early, as this show will kick off with a live accompanied Greek/Balkan folk dance workshop led by Terri Taggart.
ZARI (Shalva Makharshvili, Andrea Kuzmich, Reid Robins) is an award winning vocal trio that performs exclusively the millennia-old polyphonic singing tradition of Sakartvelo, otherwise known as Georgia – a country situated at the crossroads of Europe and Asia.
