Ventanas with guest Edmonton flamenco dancers

Featuring solos by guest Edmonton flamenco dancers Deborah Ibach and Jane Ogilvie, Ventanas brings their Magic Carpet Tour of Canada to the Artery on July 29th.

Born out of Toronto’s urban cultural music scene, Ventanas brings together musicians and dancers from the city’s diverse ethnic folk scenes. Balkan, Turkish, Sephardic and Flamenco music and dance are fused into a high-energy world music and dance show tailor-made for everything from the street to the greatest folk festivals across the country, to the international stage.

Ventanas’ summer tour showcases its self-titled debut album, released in September 2013. Tamar Ilana, with her powerful and versatile voice, weaves effortlessly through a myriad of musical styles from South Eastern Europe and the Mediterranean. Add to this gorgeous minor-key harmonies on Kosavar laments, riveting duels between percussion and voice, impassioned flamenco footwork, the plaintive voice of the violin, the deep beauty of the oud, and the intensity of flamenco guitar, and you have one unforgettable display of music, dance and inspiration.
