Altai Kai Throat Singers
Friday, Nov 30, 2018
Event Begins at 7:30 PM

Altai Kai is a world renowned ensemble of throat singers from the Republic of Altai. The throat singing group was founded in 1997 by Urmat Yntaev, with the goal of preserving and cultivating the traditional culture of the Republic of Altai, in particular the various styles of throat singing known as kai. Their velvety kargyraa (the lowest style of throat singing), mesmerizing khoomei (middle range throat singing), and melodic sygyt (highest range throat singing) place the listener amidst forests of singing birds, gurgling brooks, and the growls of nighttime predators. Stories of nature's beauty and mighty folk heroes are accompanied by jocular melodies, dancing rhythms, and shamanic mysteries. The narrators skillfully relate traditional, sacred tales and epics of centuries past.


Throat singing and the ringing melodies of the khomustopshur and accordion all come together to form the sound of Altai Kai. The art form of throat singing has been passed on through generations, and the members of Altai Kai are virtuosos in multiple genres. They are laureates of numerous national and international competitions, and Altai Kai has participated in prestigious international festivals of world music, including their international debut at WOMEX 2007 (Spain) and WOMAD (Great Britain). Through their international touring, Altai Kai has introduced the world to the beauty of kai (the Altai word for throat singing). In 2003, they were inducted into the Guinness Book of World Records for the longest performance of throat singing. They are members of the Folklore Union of Russia, and the International Organization of Folk Art (an NGO accredited by UNESCO).

Una Noche De Flamenco with Gabriel Ayala, Domingo DeGrazia and Ismael Barajas – three of Tucson’s finest guitarists.


 


Gabriel Ayala, a member of the Yaqui people of southern Arizona, performs regularly throughout the United States and has appeared at the Poway Center for Performing Arts, John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, National Museum for the American Indian, and Oscar Meyer Theater in Madison, Wisconsin.  Not only is Gabriel recognized nationally, he has also been the featured performer at the “Festival Internacional de la Guitarra Academica” in Venezuela with Performances in Caracas, Guarenas, Guatire and on National Public Television throughout Venezuela.  Ayala is a multiple award-winning guitarist and has had the honor to share the stage with some of the greatest such as Motown living legends The Four Tops, The Temptations, Richie Havens, Dr. John and many others.


 


Domingo DeGrazia, known and loved by the Tucson community, is an Arizona native and the youngest son of famed Tucson artist Ted DeGrazia.  Among his many talents and projects (which includes flying airplanes, racing motorcycles, and currently running for the Arizona House of Representatives!), Domingo has become a widely recognized guitarist and song writer known for blending Spanish, Latin and Flamenco styles.  Appearing on film and television and performing throughout the U.S., his music has reached across the globe and inspired music for “Dancing with the Stars”.  Born and raised among the music and landscape of the Sonoran desert, DeGrazia’s music embodies the experience of the Southwest and weaves a delicate tapestry through sound.  Domingo plays lead guitar, blending Spanish guitar passion with the flair of Flamenco music.  His unique sound couples dynamic rhythms with vibrant Latin, Salsa and rock drum beats. 


 


Ismael Barajas began to study guitar in the Classical and Flamenco styles at the age of thirteen.  Less than one year later, he gave his first public concert. The response was so overwhelming that art patrons formed an organization to sponsor his formal training.
Ismael’s introduction to advanced learning was to study under the Romeros, known as “Spain’s Royal Family of the Guitar.”  He was awarded a scholarship to attend the University of Arizona, School of Music.  Through the years, Ismael has appeared on many radio and television programs in the United States and Mexico, and has performed in clubs throughout Arizona, New Mexico, California, and Nevada.

The Fitzgeralds
Award-Winning Fiddling Step Dancers
Sea of Glass Performance Hall   (click for map location)
Wednesday, Mar 06, 2019
Event Begins at 7:00 PM

Siblings -Tom, Kerry & Julie Fitzgerald from just outside of Canada’s renowned Ottawa Valley, have come a long way from their small town roots.  3-time Canadian Grandmaster Fiddle Champions and Ontario Open Step Dance Champions, this unique act features high-energy fiddling and mind-blowing step dancing.  It is the rare combination of exceptional musicianship, incomparable step dancing, audience interaction, evident love of performing, and genuine sibling connection that resonates with audiences of all ages and sets this group apart.


 


The Fitzgerald siblings were raised in a musical household, and toured internationally with their family band “Everything Fitz”.  Growing up in the Ottawa Valley, they were immersed in the rich tradition of Canadian Old Time fiddling and step dancing that evolved with the arrival of Irish, Scottish and French immigrants.  Over time, they have developed their art form to include various styles of fiddle music including Celtic, jazz, bluegrass, French-Canadian, and pop.  They have also explored other forms of dance including tap and Irish.  The Fitzgeralds continue to push boundaries by fusing traditional and modern styles of fiddle and dance to create their own unique sound and style.  Their creativity and passion for experimentation has led them to compose original tunes and arrangements, some of which were released on their latest album.  The result is a groovy and catchy new sound and look that appeals to all ages.


 


Despite their young age, these musicians have some notable musical experiences under their belts.  Highlights include group/solo performances with: Nathan Carter, Leahy, Natalie McMaster, Cherish The Ladies, Tommy Hunter, Bowfire, Sharon Shannon, Liz Carroll, We Banjo 3, World-Fest, Silver Dollar City, and Branson MO.  As members of The Stepcrew, they have had the opportunity to perform with with Carlos Nunez, Solas, and Eileen Ivers.  They were guest performers on the prestigious Nathan Carter TV Christmas Special 2017, broadcast by BBC and RTE television.  Recently a video of their high-energy dance performance has went viral via Ireland's Independent.ie, with over 3 million views.  Their show is a hit at festivals including Milwaukee Irish Fest (US), Dayton Irish Fest (US), Cleveland Irish Fest (US), Iowa Irish Fest (US), Shrewsbury Folk Fest (UK), Maropisa Folk Fest (CA), Stan Rogers Folk Fest (CA), among others.


 


"The Fitzgeralds are standout musicians in our Canadian music industry.  The caliber of musicianship is very high.  I think together they are a beautiful blend of gorgeous fiddle music, and top rate, absolutely exhilarating dance routines." ~ Natalie MacMaster, Cape Breton Fiddling Sensation
